European elections: The Libertas Collection

If contradictions are the stuff of drama, Declan Ganley and Libertas are well endowed. Chairman Ganley posed as pro-European, but his campaign sowed fear among the Irish against the European Union.

Ganley still calls himself a pro-European, but his spending spree has bought up bunches of narrow-minded rejectionists from the fringes of respectable politics.

In practical terms, Libertas does not to take the European Union back to the people of Europe, but back to the Treaty of Nice.

For the lovers of European dissonance, starring Declan Ganley, here is the vintage Libertas Collection.

There was an alternative. If Declan Ganley had been serious about building a strong and democratic European Union, he could have used his talent and resources to forge a constructive alliance, practicing the virtues it preaches.
