Richard Boyd Barrett attacks PD refusal to exist as “Typical PD selfishness.”

Posted by Jason O on Mar 9, 2009 in Irish Politics, Not quite serious. |

Socialist Workers Party/People Before Profit/Save Our Seafront/No To War candidate Richard Boyd Barrett has lashed out at the decision of the Progressive Democrats to cease existence as a selfish act. Boyd Barrett delivered his rebuke at a SWPPBPSOSNTW meeting.

Whereas I could whip up left wing activists into a frenzy with a denouncing of McDowell or Harney, it just isn’t the same with Cowen, who appears on all points of the political spectrum simultaneously, or Kenny, who may actually be dead. The shameless refusal of the Progressive Democrats to get any votes is a slap in the face to the working classes.”

There is no truth in the rumour that Enda Kenny is dead.
That said, I cannot see how an unhealthy dose of Trotskyism in the shape of Richard Boyd Barrett will help the ecomomic crisis, nor do I see any use in electing demagogues like him to the Dail.
