From top: Ranelagh village; Green Party Leader Eamon Ryan during pre-Budget 2020 submissions last week
Of Mr Ryan , whose parliamentary constituency includes Ranelagh, Dublin 6, Journalist and columnist Philip Nolan tweetz:
‘Eamon Ryan wouldn’t dare tell his cosy D6 constituents they shouldn’t have at least one family car to drive Jemima to crèche, or he’d be toast.
So piss off telling rural ireland, where we actually have no public transport, that we somehow should organise a rota.’.
Green Party Councillor for Swords, County Dublin, Ian Carey respondz:
Philip, he didn’t suggest restricting car ownership for anyone. He was proposing something additional to increase mobility. He has been totally misrepresented on this. There are lots of young ppl locked out of car ownership because of insurance costs and need cheaper options.
Climate change sceptic Fiona Marie Flanagan addz:
‘One car per 10 families? Wolves in the wild? Tree planting?
Don’t for one minute think that Eamon here has the creativity to come up with any of this nonsense by himself – it’s all taken from Agenda 2030, the UN blueprint for global control…’
