    should never be discussed etc etc
    But just wondering when hopefully all here support Liverpool, a club from a city with a strong socialist background
    Who do you support ?
    Both here in Eire, in the UK & further afield.
    No judgement. Just asking.

    I don’t have any really so selected Independant.

    The next time I vote it will be based on what the local TD will do for the local community. You can’t believe anything any political party promises in relation to what they will do for the country. Once they get in they will do whatever it takes to stay in power rather than follow through on the promises. At least if the local TD doesn’t follow through on what they say they will do, you can bring them up on it.

    I’d say I be closest to Labour but they are a joke in Ireland. Would be interesting to see what Corbyn would do in England, however I am not sure he would be the savior many think he would be.

    I'll probably vote Sinn Fein next election as I did in the last one because I'd like to see a government with a social conscience in this country before I die and they're our last chance. They really need to get their finger out though,it's woeful how badly they're doing in the polls with the problems we have.Running a candidate in the presidential election was a massive own goal. Labour would be leading the current Dail if they'd of resisted the temptation to go into coalition with Fine Gael in the last one.

    If I lived in the UK or America it would be a complete no brainer,Labour and Democrat because the alternatives are everything thats bad in politics,but both Labour and the Democrats deserve plenty of criticism and there will never be a British or American government that don't do morally reprehensible things no matter who's in power.

    Haven't decided yet. I was about to choose independent but after the last general election here where did that vote get me as all we got was the same bunch of cunts propped up by the original bunch of cunts which is tragically hilarious.

    Politics is broken and if looking at our own tiny piece of the world being fucked over from decades of greed and cronyism isn't bad enough we've got a world now that's a ticking time bomb due to the 1 percent deciding to fabricate a dystopian future.

    PBP/AAA would be the closest to me, I would describe myself as a believer in Democratic socialism.

    Personally I don't trust any of them. I especially can't stand that Paul Murphy fella born with a silver spoon in his mouth and then used the people of Tallaght for political office (I'm from Tallaght).

    The whole structure of how the political system works is completely outdated in my opinion.

    Alot of this so called politicians aren't qualified for the areas they represent and these leads to issues down the line.

    Workers Party if it was there and they were a bigger party. In a complete contradiction of that I'll be going SF at the next election, mainly to try and oust one of the FF/FG heads out my way. Not a massive fan of the Trots. Could do with a Corbyn over here if I'm being honest.

    I think there was a constituency border change the last time and his part of Rathfarnham got realigned as far over as Tallaght.
    The line is Grange Road think in Rathfarnham which is mostly posh enough
