Attached is a .PDF copy of a statement issued on my behalf by The Peoples Convention.
The statement is important because it is an attempt to expose the role of the party system in our democracy as against the right of citizens.
We have highlighted the fact that there is no mention in Bunreacht na hÉireann of “party”. Article 16.2.1 states that the Dáil should be composed of people who “represent constituencies”, it does not provide for anyone to represent either themselves individually or any party.
This presupposes that TD’s should seek mandate from their constituencies on all issues, it also presupposes that private clubs should not be allowed to usurp either the selection or election process, and they should not be given state funding or preferential status.
To highlight this issue, I have refused to complete the Statutory Declarations required by the Standards in Public Office (SIPO) legislation, something required by my involvement in the General Election (2011).
Either the SIPO legislation means something or it is a sham as declared … if it means anything then I should be prosecuted – and we get to debate this question in open court.
You can assist in this matter by publicising this issue, via social network links, forwarding this email, discussing with your friends or in any organisations you have involvement with.
Please contact me if any clarification is required or if you can help in any way,
