A new political party, Irexit Freedom to Prosper, campaigning for Ireland to leave the EU will field candidates in next years European elections, its founder Herman Kelly has said.
Speaking at the founding AGM of the party at a hotel in Dublin on Saturday, he said: Today is about fulfilling the legal requirements to register, to sign up 300 people, and to have an AGM to elect national officers. We will be running candidates in the European elections. The elections are due to take place alongside local elections, in May 2019.
Before the conference got under way, Mr. Kelly said, the benefits and the necessity of leaving the EU would be under discussion. Why? So we can take back control over trade policy, money and borders, and be a free country once again. We were a free country for a short period after we left the last political union we were in, which was the British Empire.
He said: The relative advantages of being in the EU have decreased; and now that we are a net contributor of 400 million a year to old drunk men who make our laws, I think were crazy to stay in. [ ]
Ben Scallon (21), co-founder of Civil Right Media, said the biggest threat to our freedoms was the EU super state.
Describing the EU as ultra left and Marxist, he said Marxism was a murderous totalitarian ideology which had inflicted terrible suffering on the smaller states in Europe.

I thought Ireland was content with belong to the EU, as with Scotland. Apparently, there is dissatisfaction.
I don’t generally hear much about either Ireland or North Ireland except that both are being filled up with Muslim immigrants. What could possibly go wrong?
Not everyone in Ireland goes along with the groupthink. Although clearly it isn’t enough as yet, given those vile referendum results within the past few years.
Scotland’s socialists with the big mouths get the most press, obviously. I find it disturbing that one particular socialist party in Scotland is called the “Scottish National Party”, given what is signified when nationalism and socialism combine.
Herman Kelly is from County Derry, which is in Northern Ireland, but there are still quite a few independence-minded people there. Northern Ireland is the only part of the island where abortion remains illegal, but the left is trying to chip away at that coming from the Irish Republic and mainland Britain.
After that abortion thing, Ireland can leave the entire planet as far as I’m concerned.
I loved that place too. Oh well.
He said: The relative advantages of being in the EU have decreased; and now that we are a net contributor of 400 million a year to old drunk men who make our laws, I think were crazy to stay in.
So as long as they received billions and billions, it was OK (so what if the EU is a totalitarian construct run by old drunk men). Now...take the money and run, baby!
