WUAG leave ULA

http://www.rte.ie/news/2012/1002/healy-ula-dail.html

“Deputy Healy also accused the Socialist Workers Party, represented in the Dáil by Richard Boyd Barrett, of being more interested in bolstering its own recruitment than in building a socialist alliance.”

Not that the WUAG can really claim to have shown any particular interest in “building a socialist alliance” as they barely used the alliance brand, except for electoral purposes, and the bulk of their members weren’t even signed up as ULA members.

    Apparently the full statement by the WUAG includes:

    “The objective of WUAG has always been the formation of an alternative to the Labour Party with wide popular support on the basis of rejection in principle of coalition with conservative parties. We believe that we can now better further this objective outside the ULA. Accordingly we will shortly register as a national political party and seek support at national level. The foundation stone of the new party will be rejection in principle of coalition with conservative parties such as Fianna Fail and Fine Gael. Participation in such coalitions has repeatedly devastated the political arm of the labour movement. This is evident again to-day. ”

    Will be interesting to see if this has any reality to it – hard to see what political forces they think will be attracted to such a proposal.
