People Before Profit ashamed of our National Flag
A People Before Profit Councillor in Fingal - Matthew Waine opposed a motion to fly the Irish Flag outside Fingal County Hall saying - "I would prefer to see the red flag outside county hall here".. referring to the flag of communism..."Maybe in the future that will be the case".  

The Motion before Councillors read as follows  :

this council will ask the chief executive to ensure that the irish flag will fly permanentely outside the county hall

if the motion is passed arrangements will be made for the national flag to be raised and lowered during office hours will be put in place


 
However , Councillor Matthew Waine of the Solidarity People Before Profit party objected to the motion .   

Voting against the motion , Mr Waine told other Councillors  : 

I dont really agree with this . we have one of the most multicultural populations of the whole country living in fingal and I think we need to consider the sensitivity of this , because the issue of religion , language nationality  , all of those issues are extremelty sensitive.

I think we should flow the flags of minority groups

I come from the tradition of the workers movement , the labour movement which doesn't see the country of your birth being anything really significant

I would prefer to see the red flag fly outside county hall here , maybe in the future that will be the case 

 - Councillor Matthew Waine  (solidarity-PBP party)

Mr Waine's Views met with strong rebuke from Independent councillor Jimmy Guerin , the brother of murdered journalist Veronica Guerin who said :

I take offence at the comments of councillor wayne .

I'm not surprised at him suggesting we fly a red flag , in fairness you've been appointed to the council by someone who only last week told us that our inspiration is from the russian revolution ,

so i dont think we shoud take surprise at anything thats said by councillor wayne and I'd be very supportive of this motion , I'm very proud to be irish , I'm very proud of my flag and i think it is a very appropriate and well thought through motion

  -  councillor Jimmy Guerin (Independent)

One good thing to celebrate , Matthew waine , the Socialist party guy from Mulhuddart who voted against flying the Irish Flag , he was rejected by the people and lost his seat .
#
so people before profit hate the irish flag and want the red flag of communism instead . how upsetting is that for people from eastern europe who were persecuted at the hands of communists . When the Berlin wall came down , there was a mass exodus , they couldn't get out fast enough . people before profit should be ashamed of themselves . I love our national flag and am very proud to be irish , we need to get all these Ireland Haters out of Ireland . Send them to North Korea and see how much they like the red flag then
#
very proud of being Irish and our flag , Dont have much time for people who are ashamed of their irishness like PBP or anyone else who hates our flag . There is so much anti irish bigotry in Ireland right now , pearse & friends would be turning in graves
#
maybe Mr Waine should go live in North Korea and see if he still likes that for a couple of years .

he'll soon realise the reality , that communism = oppression , the government become the bourgeoisie or middle class , everyone else is left to fight it out for scraps of food while they enrich themselves at the expense of the working class
#
i very worrid for ireland now . this makes me so angry . communism kils . millions of polish people suffer and christians killed by communist
#
Have these people no shame , do they know how many people communism has killed .

this idea to fly the communist flag is highly offensive not only to irish people but also people from eastern europe who are living in fingal
#
I can just picture the red flag flying opposite the EU flag

if a picture could paint a thousand words , it would show how far the country has fallen over the past 100 years

now ruled over by communists and europhiles
