The new Galway tent

Boston conservative activisit Michael Graham --

I’m leaving today for Ireland, where I’ll be hosting two training sessions for Irish voters interested in forming their own version of a tea-party movement. Don’t know if it will involve tea — I prefer Bushmill’s — but it’s part of a small but growing tea-party movement in Europe. Britain and Italy have their own movements underway.

It's a tie-in with George Hook of Newstalk doing a special broadcast from Galway. An Irish Tea Party could hardly be worse than what the existing political system has delivered, but precisely how Ireland makes the case for Tea Party prescriptions -- low taxes and less regulation -- is not entirely clear.

UPDATE: Graham's post-Galway account is fairly realistic.
