The Cork Democratic Party

A few parties are using the Lisbon II Referendum Campaign to launch themselves. One of these is the Cork Democratic Party.

Its not very often you come across a political party in Ireland based around a place, so this is an interesting development in itself. It will be quite interesting to find out what they stand for, because all I know at the moment is that they are opposed to the Lisbon Treaty.

I am kind of hoping that they are a secessionist grouping (Cork leaving the republic I mean), because that would liven up political discourse down here!

I wont go into what they are claiming about Lisbon, but they have big signs up on the Sarsfield Road roundabout, if anyone wants to check it out.

If you know anything about them let me know!
