New political party launched today...

The party favours abandoning the euro and returning to the punt but its European election candidate in the new South constituency Peter O’Loughlin said only when all euro zone countries abandoned the currency.

The party also opposes economic migration and Mr O’Loughlin said there is “no sense in having 500,000 of our own citizens unemployed and still bringing in economic migrants”.
He stressed it was “simply a question of numbers, not of ethnicity”.

New party seeks euro exit and end to immigration - The Irish Times - Tue, Jan 14, 2014


We will impose a three year moratorium on economic migration to Ireland. It is ridiculous to engage in open border policies while record numbers emigrate from the country and almost 500,000 people are either unemployed or on training courses. Once the economy recovers we will institute a balanced immigration policy, similar to those in other countries, which will only allow those who will benefit our country to enter but will reduce competition with citizens for job opportunities and social supports.

The beautiful south
Quoth Jerry from Bray.

Anyway, Mr O'Loughlin describes the party as Libertarian which seems now to be code for 'me, me, me' politics so yeah, good luck to him.
They may actually get some winners in the locals due to an anti-government* backlash but Europeans? Nah, they're even more expensive than ever before and running outside of Dublin effectively means canvassing half the country, difficult enough for an established party let alone this lot.

*For government read mostly Labour, I imagine FG will hold up fairly well.

A representative of this crowd is on radio right now. Happily accepting plaudits from UKIP and matter of factly discussing The National Front as fellow travelers in the 'war' that is currently raging in Europe

Fair dues to them not trying to hide their intentions.
