It's a smart move on their part to position themselves so that fairly mainstream people like Ray Kinsella will speak at their meetings.

The big political scoop of September was possibly going to be the announcement of the SF presidential candidate. However, may the launch of a new party steal the Shinners' thunder? Supporters of Irexit and the supposed grand narrative of rising Western populism surely would hope so! Apart from back to school and the Dublin Horse Show, the new Irexit Freedom Party may prove to be quite a significant event of the next couple months.

The new party's launch, to be held in the Bonnington Hotel in Whitehall (formerly the Regency Hotel, until that fella was shot in it and it dropped a star) will include the presumed leader of this new party Hermann Kelly. Kelly, a journalist for the Irish Catholic and political consultant to Britain's UKIP, wants to bring Ireland out of the E.U. alongside Britain. An Irexit, the party's raison d'etre, is a very ambitious goal. The new party is evidently modeled off UKIP and hopes to present a repackaged Brexit to the Irish public in the form of Irexit.

The party are charging eight euro for entry to their AGM. It'll be an interesting thing to see how they play out. The times they are a changin'!
Great news.

Hopefully they'll also have a flat tax policy, be for the most part libertarian on social issues and promise a referendum to strengthen protections for free speech, including reform of our ridiculous libel laws.

Having spoken to some of the main movers in this new party, as a Republican and Socialist I can give it my full confidence. I would recommend that all my Comrades on Politicalirish.com give serious consideration to attending its AGM on September 8th. Here we have an old time 32 county Irish Republican and Nationalist party, who will always put the Native Irish first and Make Ireland Great Again.

I wish I had your total confidence. Can you reveal who you spoke to, and what they told you to make you so enthusiastic?

Personally I hold reservations about them. The fact of having an Irexit to match Brexit instantly lumps us in the Anglophile mould. I personally support leaving in theory, however I think the best way forward for small nations like ours is to fight the system from the inside. The model of Orban's Hungary is the way forward, not Brexit. Our Irish euroskepticism needs to be grounded in Irish nationalism & realpolitik, not a foreign franchise with some Irish traits/lipservice. Their approach to the border will be all-telling, if it's anything less then demanding a British evacuation of our northern lands and the establishment of a sovereign Irish Republic then I consider the party comprised by its own contradictions. I'm a little surprised too at your ringing endorsement, given their pro-free market / small business approach to the economy as you're a communist.

The Irexit Freedom Party have admirable qualities, but the ideology all seems a bit imported and re-packaged to me. I think a merge between the NP and the IFP with a new leader would be a decent possibility (someone from military life, or someone who's already known in politics/public life). Then it could be a lethal force against the Gombeen regime & international finance.

You were told about this garbage before - "Grexit" predates "Brexit", Macron has threatened "Frexit".

Irexit is as "Anglophile" as you are "Hungarophile"...

I can't say who I was talking to at this time, but I can say that I'm completely confident that the party is grounded in traditional Irish Republicanism and Nationalism. They may have been inspired by Brexit, but they are not hanging on the coat tails of UKIP. They want a 32 County Irish Republic, completely independent from the so called "UK." They want an Irish Ireland, where the Native people are not under threat of abortion, exile and replacement by cheap migrant labour. The impression I get is that their economic policy is not fully formed, but it would be a mixture of small business ownership with the vital national interests being in national hands. As Mao would put it, mass immigration is the Principal Contradiction, and we can all join a unified struggle until that is ended. I believe that the Irexit Party is the best vehicle for doing that. Which is not to say that the NP isn't important, of course it is. There are more than one way to skin a cat.

Well I'm not saying leaving the EU is Anglophile. But this party is going down the line of "muh fish and free trade deal with Pakistan". I wonder too will they spar with UKIP, etc. in the North and regarding the Northern Question. I hope they don't fall into the trap Pim O'Loughlin from Identity Ireland did whereby they endorsed a unionist party in the North (For Britain).

Well if you can't name names it's impossible for me to take any position on it, as your source isn't known to me. I'll wait and see what happens. But from my own observations I remain skeptical. Although I don't like the notion of loads of parties springing up. One united nationalist party is what is needed, especially in as small a country as this. A too many chiefs and not enough Indians is likely to emerge soon.

Stop being a spokesman for Goldman Sachs.

Britain isn't Pakistan (yet).

You state 1 United Nationalist Party is needed, good to see you giving up on Jonathan Barrett :D

Justin Barrett should be a part of a United Nationalist party, if not leading it.

Also what happened to your giant bold text?

Yes, that's fine. I'm only asking that people consider this party. I think we both know that the NP will never be mainstream enough to really change anything. It also tends to alienate people who would naturally be sympathetic to it - such as Republicans and Socialists.
