What I believe
- The European and Local elections will be about the direction of Irish society and how we shape the future
- Sustainable employment and access to quality health services are a right not a privilege
- We need a new European policy that gives priority to building a social Europe that creates jobs and promotes fairness and equality
Your Independent Candidate for Dublin - European Elections May 2014
Who represents Ireland in Europe is important to the lives of ordinary people. I need your support so that I can go back there and work with other like minded MEPs to build an alternative to austerity, and bring about a true social Europe that creates jobs, and protects communities. Who you send to Europe is very important, because even though we’ve exited the bail-out - Ireland is still subject to strict EU surveillance and supervision of our national budget, including taxation levels and spending on public services. These new stringent fiscal controls are especially damaging as they do not include social protection – if re-elected I will join likeminded MEPs to fight to change these unfair and undemocratic mechanisms.
