I agree with everything my fellow Irish woman had to say there
She should be the next Taoiseach ( prime Minister ) of Ireland, now that would make me proud.
I am not up on Irish politics and this speech is spot on, but as I look into Ms. Daly's background I note she is a socialist at heart. All these
politicians come in speaking of the people's rights and garnering support, and then when given enough power they show their true colors. I just don't
know what to think of Ms. Daly.
What happens in the EU greatly affects America, yet most Americans are highly ignorant of what's going on there. I will also note that I am aware she
left the "Socialist Party" in 2012 and joined the United Left Alliance (ULA).
She also seems to have been embroiled in a bit of scandal
On September 1 Dublin North TD (Teachta Dála—member of parliament) and long-standing Socialist Party member Clare Daly announced she had resigned
from the party following a row over her political connection to the disgraced property developer and Independent TD Mick Wallace. She said she will
“redesignate” herself as a United Left Alliance (ULA) TD.
Daly’s move demonstrates once again the thoroughly unprincipled character of the Irish ex-left as a whole, as it lurches ever further to the right.
The ULA was founded against the backdrop of the collapse of Irish state finances and the negotiations with the Troika of the European Union (EU),
International Monetary Fund (IMF) and European Central Bank (ECB) over an 85 billion euro bailout in November 2010. It is an opportunist alliance
between the SP and Socialist Workers Party (SWP), designed to channel growing anger over the vicious austerity measures of the ruling elite back in to
parliamentary politics and to maintain the control of the trade union bureaucracy over working class struggles.
It is my hope that she is truly for the people and not for Marxism which was never about the people, but power.
