GANLEY ANNOUNCES ALTERNATIVE FOR IRELAND.

Declan Ganley, founder and head of Libertas, a movement that campaigned for a no' in the referendum on the Lisbon Treaty, announced in Dublin the creation of a new political movement, Alternative for Ireland. At a public meeting to present the movement, he said that Brussels had too many powers and was "too big, too unwieldy and structurally undemocratic," but insisted he was not Eurosceptic. Ganley had tried for Lisbon II - the second vote by the Irish on the Lisbon Treaty - to extend the Libertas movement to other member states ahead of the European elections of 2009. His success was very limited and Ganley failed to secure a seat as an MEP.
