The Socialist Party website has published an interview with Padraig / Patrick which gives perhaps the clearest indication yet of his / their intent with regard to their objective of ownership and control of NIPSA as a means to further their specific political agenda.
The interview can be read here.
Of particular interest is the phrasing of the following questions:
The NIPSA union is not a plaything to be used to further the political ambitions of individuals or a certain political ideology. That message needs to be sent clearly and emphatically to those who think it is or that it ought to be.
