Nessa Childers in Diem25's Ireland Launch Event

"I listen to endless talk about the existential crisis of socialists and democrats and not very much insight into the fact that they have brought it upon themselves." (Video, 12 mins)

"I listen to endless talk about the existential crisis of socialists and democrats and not very much insight into the fact that they have brought it upon themselves. There is a complete avoidance of this and I find it a very uncomfortable position to be in, because I hear this talking all the time about how the 'messaging' is wrong. It's not about the messaging - it;s about the messenger and the policies and not wanting to see the faces of your audience. That's what it's about."

Video from the DiEM25 Ireland launch in Dublin, 27 May 2017.
