Movement for political change
Canvass Up date from Wicklow Town
I am going out on to the door ways of the local estates now for four weeks. It is a slow possess as I try to get to talk to all of the home owners.
There is no point is just sticking a leaflet in the post box as it only goes straight into the bin!
I have visited approximately 500 households and I can tell you that most people are not interested in any politics, they are disgusted with all of the political parties and I would not be surprised to see Fianna Fail back in power.
I was nearly beaten with a shovel from one upstanding member of the community as he thought I was a green candidate.
I am taking this action to change what most people are complaining about, by going out and trying to do something about the corrupt system and the cancers that have managed to con their way into the Dail on our behalf, making promises at our doors only to disappear and never to be heard of again.
Unless we manage to get most of the sitting TD, s and a fair number of the political dinosaurs from all parties out of the Dail we are frankly snookered!
Most of the people I see say they will not be voting for anybody regardless of what party
As far as they are concerned, they believe as I do, that they are all quite happy to keep this ship on its current course, because of their self interest, their massive salaries, pensions, perks and built up entitlements are all they really care about!
I have yet to come across a household that can say they got a visit from their sitting TD in the last two general elections
The current opposition need to wake up as far as I can see they are just as despised as the corrupt Fiannia Fail gangsters, because of their perceived incompetence in opposition
They are for most people just as bad for allowing Fianna Fail get away with bailing out their buddies in the Banks and Building Trade and Enda Kenny’s stroll down memory lane in the K-Club with top developers has shaken the trust people might have had in him to deliver real accountability in any future Government
As far as most people think it’s just one shower of corrupt politicians playing musical chairs with each other and “stuff the rest of us”
The oppositions recent declarations that they are going to lead the next government has infuriated a lot of voters because they feel (rightly) that the Labour party and Fine Gael are taken them for granted ,assuming they are going to just step into government without having to show the people what difference there is between them and Fianna Fail
A kind of we are entitled to just take over attitude is not going down too well I can tell you!
If you see me out and about say hello, it sure does perk you up after getting lambasted at someone’s door
Will be in Glebemount all to-day and to-morrow
