[Scenes from the Reform Alliance ‘monster meeting’ at the RDS, Ballsbridge, Dublin today]
[Lucinda Creighton] said that this is not about party politics and it is not about replicating what is already there, she said. Rather it is about getting people in power to embrace some of the reforms discussed at this meeting. More meetings will now take place across the country, Ms Creighton saidThe attendance at the meeting shows that people do want something new and different. She got a standing ovation when she mentioned the stand she and her colleagues took against abortion legislation last year.
