Exclusive Q&A with Ben Gilroy – MEP Candidate for Midlands/NW


We talked to Direct Democracy Ireland MEP candidate, Ben Gilroy, who is running  in the European Elections in the Midlands North West Constituency.

 Ben believes in implementing direct democracy in Ireland by returning the power  to the people to call referendums, instigate legislation, and recall representatives  who fail to perform.

 STOP Bondholder Payments: There is no legal liability for Irish people and their  children to pay for private banking debts.

 REDUCE Family Home Mortgages: A substantial write down of personal debt to  keep people in their homes and stimulate our domestic economy.

ABOLISH All Taxes on Family Homes: “It is morally wrong, unjust and unfair to tax a persons home” – Enda Kenny, 1994.

PROTECT Services & Allowances: Review all cuts made to essential services and people’s vital allowances.

CUT Business Rates: Reduce costs for business to help make them more affordable and competitive thus protecting Irish jobs.

PREVENT State Asset Stripping: Keep water, oil, gas, forestry, fisheries and mineral assets working for the people.

The pro-life candidate is a very good example of someone who would be a true public servant, and not bow down to the big-wigs in Europe like the political elite of this country currently do.
