with 2 comments

The Irish Times reports (July 11 2020) :

Meanwhile unsuccessful Green Party European Parliament candidate Saoirse McHugh has said she will vote in this month’s leadership election but she will quit afterwards, regardless of the outcome.Many of the 76 per cent who voted in favour of the “waffle fest” for government deal were pressurized into accepting by the fear of an unclear alternative.

Predicting the Greens’ membership will fall, McHugh said she does not believe people who share her views are now particularly welcome in the party.
