• Recognise Catalonia as an Independant state
    Catalonia are being robbed financially and culturally and the majority want independence from Spain. Spain is divided up into 17 communes and each should pay 5.88% tax but Catalonia pay over 20%.Their infrasture has not been invested in with road charges going straight to Madrid while most of the rest of Spain enjoy no tolls on their roads. Their trains are over 40 years old as the rest of Spains trains have been updated while their system is falling apart. Catalonia are forbidden to create flights to the USA therefore American businesses set up in Madrid instead. Catalonia are not allowed to use renewable energies in such a sunny climate as this would affect profits for electricity suppliers based in Madrid. An agreement that Spain would reimburse Catalonia with 769 million euro was reneged upon.Spain also are trying to wipe out the Catalan language by not funding schools to teach it. There are 50 corruption cases opened with no sign of anyone been held responsible. Catalonians want a Republic like ours and not a dictatorship and I think Ireland should stand behind them.

  • Get rid of of motor tax on electric and hybrid cars
    It's environmentally essential to reduce fuel emissionsfrom. motor vehicles, but it looks likely that the budget will seek to increase the cost of diesel. This will not work to reduce emissions but act as a money grab for the exchequer. Abolishing road tax on electric and hybrids will actively incentivise people to switch.
