Scenes from the launch of the Irexit Freedom Party led by County Derry-born former Nigel Farage aide Hermann Kelly.
The draft political programme for the party states that “an exit from the EU would permit the Irish people to take back control” of citizenship, currency, immigration, sea-fisheries and trade, among other things.
Its programme also pledges support for a “reunited and independent Ireland under the control of the Irish people and not that of either London or Brussels”.
Among the party’s secondary objectives are opposing the “political / media hegemony”, “protection of the Irish language” and as a “patriotic party” it is “pro-nationalist and supportive of stable families for procreation”.
