Belfast Greens set up motion on government of national unity…

The Greens are the would be bad boys of the Irish progressive politics world for sticking through the storm surrounding Fianna Fail led government. Of some local note is this resolution from the South Belfast Greens to be discussed first thing tomorrow:

a. We want to position the Greens in a leadership position
b. We believe that we can embed a radical new approach to ‘growth’ and development across the political spectrum, if we can trigger a unified government
c. We can protect the party from the inevitable downward slide of FF

They’ve embedded Simon’s Liveblog here. Our own will launch tonight before John Gormley’s opening address. Convention Timetable here. Watch it live here.

    We should note the Greens invited Slugger to join the media/blogging contingent but them having their conference in the arse end of nowhere (Wexford) meant no one could go.

    That’s an interesting motion, bound to be defeated but fairplay to the nordies for stirring it up.
