The Green Party in Ireland is as bad as it is over here. In Ireland it has dropped its insistence on retaining the current “Triple Lock” mechanism that governs sending troops abroad on peacekeeping missions.
The party’s policy council has recently voted unanimously to drop the necessity for a UN resolution.
RTE reported that “Any move to modify the mechanism could be contentious. People Before Profit TD Richard Boyd Barrett told the Dáil last week that the forum was part of a sustained campaign by Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael to dismantle Irish neutrality.”
The news comes after revelations recently that Irish airspace is patrolled by the RAF.
Sabre rattlers in Ireland are even more ludicrous than their British counterparts. They are hardly an imperialist attack dog, more like Scrappy Doo.
