We must create change

Madam – Jody Corcoran says that Ireland needs a new political party. I suggest what we need is a new movement rather than a party within a failed system.

This movement would give power back to communities, make the taxpayer the most important person in the State, and make decisions with future generations in mind rather than merely the next election.

No standard politician wants to give away power, our politicians crave power – but alas have no idea how to use power for the general good. What Ireland needs now is people to leave a legacy for generations to come – like the late Victorians, who gave us free parks, museums, street lighting, safe drinking water and basic education for all.
