New political party due in South

OK, so it’s single sourced and unattributed… but I know who the guy is and I never said forth was a newspaper anyway.

New Irish political party seeks to make impact before 2012
Socially and economically liberal political group to launch before election hopes to avoid making the PDs’ errors all over again

Here’s the interesting question, though: is there room for such a party? Clearly there are large sections of social and economic thought that are unserved in Ireland, North and South, including the territory this crew plan on staking out. However, the stubborn refusal of Irish politics to move away from the ideology-free blancmange that is the Fianna Fáil-Fine Gael party is no accident. It happens for a reason.
