Why I Will Never Vote FG/FF/LABOUR?

People have their own views on Irish political parties. I do too. Over years and decades of also living under three political parties, I have decided never to vote for a number of them again. Ever. Here are some of my reasons that have convinced me they should never be trusted with anything or by…

Are Party Whips Undemocratic?

When you join the usual parties of old, they have within in them what is known as a “Party Whip”. This is a person that appointed to keep other party members in line, under strict control and told to publicly speak only what the heads of the party want them to say. Members are also…
