"We Need to Tackle Drugs in Our Community At Their Root" - Daniel Connolly

Aontú representative for Newry Armagh, Daniel Connolly, has reacted to the seizure of £600,000 worth of Class A, B & C drugs, cash, stolen vehicles and laundered fuel

Speaking today Aontú representative Daniel Connolly said “The sheer amount seized by the police in South Armagh this week is indictive of a larger problem in our community. We’ve seen a massive growth in addiction problems and anti-social behaviour that needs to be treated at its root”

Daniel Connolly continued “Over the past few months I’ve been hearing more and more stories about drugs and crime in our community that are deeply concerning to me. We need to tackle these problems head on”

“These problems hurt more than just those involved. It hurts our friends, families and our community at large. We need to have a holistic approach to dealing with these problems at their core” Daniel Connolly concluded

The Irish political system is radically broken

In Ireland the vast majority of elected representatives put a finger in the air to check which way the political wind is blowing. They have one eye on their leaders – seeking brownie points – and another eye keeping their seat safe. If elected reps shut up and do as they’re told, they are promoted; if they stand up for what they believe in, they are demoted. No wonder we have the political class we have. No wonder one point one billion euro is being buried in a hole under the National Children’s Hospital and that Stormont is in stalemate.

Throughout Ireland, many people are now afraid to say what they feel, many are afraid to respectfully engage on a range of different topics. Many feel there is a new censorship and a new political correctness in Ireland, that opposition to the establishment is being deleted.

Respectful opposition is not the enemy. Respectful opposition is a critical element of a functional democracy. Aontú will have the backbone to stand up, without fear, for you.
