    New political party - Irexit Freedom.

    A new political party, which plans to campaign for Ireland to leave the EU, will be launched next weekend.

    The Irexit Freedom party will hold a conference in Dublin next Saturday with the goal of seeing Ireland exit Europe.

    Hermann Kelly is a spokesperson for the Irexit Freedom party. He says Ireland should follow Britain's example.

    Hermann Kelly certainly has experience in the area, having worked with both Farage and Ganley.

    But I can't see this really taking off at all. There is nowhere near the Euroscepticism in Ireland that there is in the UK, and the Brexit currently underway would hardly swing any undecided voters in their favour.

    Hard to know what, if anything, they hope to achieve.

    This would be hilarious if it weren't so embarrassing.

    Urgh. It sounds like a sheep drench advert from the 1980s...

    [Voice-over, sounds suspiciously like a Boris Johnson smary type] So, Herman, how do you keep your flock in such good fettle?
    [Gormless tw*t pretenting to be a farmer looks up at the camera and grins like he's been caught having bad thoughts about the Mother Superior and doesn't feel too bad about it.]
    [Voice-over] That's right, one dose of Irexit Freedom kills all known scour and fluke in rams and EUs.
    [Cut to image of manufactuer, V Putin smiling beatifically]
    [Voice-over] Dead!
    Hello, hello? What's going on? What's all this shouting, we'll have no trouble here!

    Groups like this pop up every cycle, get a load of column inches out of all proportion to their membership and impact, get a hundred votes in the GE and then vanish. What was the last one? Identity Ireland or something?

    They might register votes in three figures next time.

    Judging by various Irish SM there's a very hardcore contingent of racists, Eurosceptics, Tr*mp apologists and Islamophobes out there, including one poster from this MB sadly...

    Make your own mind up here...

    It's not even him I object to, but all the even bigger nutjobs this will undoubtedly draw out...
