Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The possible demise of the Green Party as a Parliamentary party is largely due to their participation in the most unpopular Government in Irish political history and their failure to oppose NAMA or the Bank Bail-out - and now the IMF/ECB deal brought about by those failures.  They have, however, played a significant role in main-streaming some "green" issues and their elimination as a significant parliamentary force need not result in major setbacks for more environmentally sustainable Government policies.  It is a pity, however, that "Green" policies have, to some extent, been given a bad name by the failure of the Green Party to stand up for a distinct political or economic policy when it mattered most.
