Just wanted to post this because it isn’t often I feel proud to belong to something. Today is a day when I do. What we know so far from the Irish general election results:
while the rest of the world seems to be swinging right and flirting with populism/fascism, Ireland has voted left, and in some constituencies the alt-right have polled fewer votes than there were spoilt ballot papers,
the two main parties of conservatism that have kept the country in a priest-ridden parody of itself for the best part of 100 years have been beaten,
immigration was an issue for only 1% of left wing voters,
young people have come out in droves to vote for CHANGE.
