#GreenWave is hugely positive & hopeful. It's so much more than a vote - its a demand for real & radical action on #ClimateEmergency transforming our unsustainable & unequal economies in a socially just transition. But will the Centre woo, claim & tame it? https://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland/irish-news/surge-in-support-for-green-party-according-to-exit-poll-1.3903713?mode=amp …
Very busy morning here at the #Waterford count centre at WIT Arena. Unfortunately no counting yet of #LE19 or #EP2019, but lots of interest in the possible #GreenWave that's breaking all over the country. Hearing good things from the Dublin counts!
It appears the voters have punished FF & FG in #ep2019 The #housingcrisis - esp in Dublin - was the main issue along with #GreenWave The Gov must listen to the people & ditch their failed hsg policies - go build social & affordable homes & protect tenants!
About to go on @RTERadio1 to discuss their exit poll. Our @europeangreens colleagues will be on tenderhooks, wishing we can return three MEPs. We hope to hold the balance of power in the new parliament. Every seat counts. #EP2019#LE19#greenwave
Observations on #LE19#EP2019#GreenWave was most able to effectively leverage social media Europe-wide. Though not a substitute for knocking on doors and campaign posters, it's key where resources less. @RTERadio1
I suppose I have nothing better to do all day than reply to the echo chamber barrage from the populist, uneducated and individualistic swathe of typical Irish begrudgers moaning about the @greenparty_ie#GreenWave#greens
Pathetic fallacy via dogs: Buster and Ted's #GreenWave elation last night gives way to weariness when I realise I am unlikely to know the fate of my Green & Purple friends for many more nervous days. #EE19
