To bring about Extensive Political & Social Reform in Ireland:
4. Guiding Principles
- The political decision-making processes belong solely to the people and has to be returned to them, thereby empowering them.
- The Constitution of Ireland is the fundamental law of Ireland governing the State on behalf of the people, from whom all powers of government derive. It affirms the national sovereignty of the Irish people. It is to be adhered to by all institutions in, and of the State, and by public servants of the State.
- The basic tenet of all law, ‘harm no other or their property’, applies to all in society, living and corporate.
- The State Broadcaster should disseminate factual, unbiased and uncensored information; we will work to ensure that State broadcasts and press releases are factual and balanced and will work to address misinformation and disinformation in the public realm. (See also, Principal Objective 7.20)
5. The People’s Platform is Established:
The People’s Platform is established as an Unwhipped Political Party and equally a Support System for Independent Candidates who support the Guiding Principles and the Principle Objectives of the People’s Platform.
These ideally are to come together as a grouping and voting block within the Dáil. Issues not covered by the Guiding Principles or Principle Objectives within the People’s Platform Constitution will be debated for the purpose of informed decision-making and to ideally achieve consensus.
6. Principal Objectives:
- To end the control of the Country, the Dáil and Local Government by compromised whipped political parties and their corporate and other masters.
- To establish the first truly unwhipped Irish political party, the People’s Platform.
- To create a Support Structure for Independent Candidates who support the Principal Objectives of the People’s Platform Movement and Party.
- To replace compromised whipped party politicians with community selected ones who represent, and are accountable to their constituents, via a system of self-governance/consultative democracy.
- To continue to develop and establish the ‘Committees for Reform’ and bring on board Irish and International expertise to develop solutions and policy for use by the party and the independent candidates.
- To ensure the Constitution of Ireland is upheld in its entirety in all business of the Dáil, by all institutions in, and of the State, and by public servants of the State.
- To reinstate revised versions of Articles 47 & 48 of the 1922 Constitution – Citizen Initiatives; a constitutional process whereby national petitions can veto legislation and initiate new legislation.
- To ensure as per our Constitution that, ‘the family (household) is the natural primary and fundamental unit group of society, and as a moral institution, possessing inalienable and imprescriptible rights, antecedent and superior to all positive law’.
- To ensure the basic tenet of all law; ‘harm no other or their property’ applies to all in society, living & Corporate/State.
- To facilitate true access to justice for people and accountability for abuse of rights, the PP will progress the implementation in legislation of, and compliance with the UN Bangalore Principles for ethical conduct of judges, i.e. Independence, Impartiality, Integrity, Propriety, Equality, Competence and Diligence.
- To immediately introduce Collective Redress Lawsuits (Class Action Lawsuits) to Ireland. To be then used to address, e.g. the Mica and Pyrite crisis, Cervical checks scandal, Swine flu vaccine damage etc. etc.
- To support the establishment of a comprehensive Community-Public Banking system in Ireland, to be begun immediately and completed within five years.
- Reform of the health service to drastically reduce waiting lists, end waste, end duplication of effort and activity, and utilise equipment to full capacity. Less and better management is required. The Health Service is challenged to end the waste and make Healthcare effective and free at point of delivery.
- To promote the use of and retention of physical cash in society as an alternative to the ECB planned (2024) Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) which is to replace all physical cash. CBDC will give the ECB, the Central Bank and Government complete control over and the ability to intrude into your every transaction.
- To ensure there is no forced or mandated medical procedure on anyone in society, no requirement for, or reintroduction of a ‘Vaccine’ Passport, EU Digital Green Passport or Digital ID, and no discrimination. To end all mask mandates immediately, particularly for children.
- To rescind all legislative power granted to the executive branch of government including emergency powers, and the granting of such powers in future to be referred to the people.
- To end the sexualisation of children, their exploitation, their psychological abuse and conditioning in the promotion of agendas of special interest groups, NGOs etc. in the school environment. Noting that, as per the constitution, the family is the primary educator of children. Students need to be taught, to question, to think critically, to undertake methodical research, to investigate and to self-educate, across the lifespan.
- To establish from the Committees for Reform, an Irish National Forum for Arts, Science and Knowledge.
- To define and fulfil Ireland’s neutrality i.e., Ireland to hold a position of positive active neutrality with a functional ‘Defence Force’, and actively promote international global peace with justice; this to be enshrined in the Constitution of Ireland.
- To strive for independence, impartiality and uncensored state media which is not sponsored or influenced by vested interests; the board of the National Public Broadcaster should be selected and elected by the public.
- To end whipped political party control and influence, all public servants, such as county managers/CEO’s, judges, Seanad members etc. currently politically appointed, in future should be elected democratically by the public.
- To provide psychological and practical support and to develop adoption services to best-practice-standards as a real option in crisis pregnancy situations.
- To reject the introduction and operation of any form of Social Credit System to Ireland, such as the EU planned European Digital Identity (EID) for use for climate or social credits, or for other oppressive or control purposes, as is used in communist China.

Selecting, Electing & Holding to Account the Best Community Candidates
The People’s Platform Party and Movement promote self-governance/consultative-participatory democracy.
A consultative-participatory democracy system, by which each constituency selects their most suitable election candidates, promotes them, elects them, is consulted on their voting in office and holds them to account in office.
- A Facilitation Committee is to be established in every Constituency in Ireland.
- Potential election candidates come forward and others are identified or proposed. They are all invited to participate in the process to seek community support.
- At a public meeting chaired by the Facilitation Committee, they are asked to put their case to the public as to why they should be selected and supported by the community. (Social media can be used to present their case to the community)
- A runoff is then conducted in each constituency at a public meeting chaired by the Facilitation Committee to select the best candidates.
- The existing system is then used to get the candidates on the ballot paper; i.e. for a Dáil election, 30 sponsors are required for each independent candidate to put them on the ballot paper. Candidate directly affiliated to a party do not need sponsors.
- It is then the job of the communities within the constituency to get their candidates elected.
- This selection process should be focused on in preparation for elections called at short notice.
- These elected public representatives will be required to meet with the public, on at least six occasions in any calendar year.
- Members of the public, via public meetings chaired by the Facilitation Committee are to be empowered to make proposals that once seconded and passed by a majority vote of the meeting are binding on their public representatives.
