"Today has been one filled with passionate debate. I am proud that the Green Party has reached this position," said John Gormley, the party leader and Ireland's environment minister.'
So as widely predicted the special conference today has seen existing members back the continuation of the government with Fianna Fail.
Some have suggest that Gormley didn't even bother calling for FF to stop the motorway going through Tara.
The fact is that the Green negotiators – Gormley, Dan Boyle and Green general secretary, Dan Geoghegan, were fully aware that the order was due to be signed by the then incumbent environment minister, Dick Roche, but they failed to even request that it be deferred, much less make it a serious issue for negotiation.
Shocking stuff, certainly makes it more difficult, for Greens right across Europe to progress.
Oh and they have voted to support the Lisbon treaty...
The radical Greens have left the party, leaving a shell organisation, of careerists.
Remember folks you can't enjoy your pensions from serving in the Dail on dead planet.
