Our party will put forward a proposal in greater detail in the new year. The Irish people will see that there is an alternative and they will have their chance to adjudicate on this Government's performance. It will not be about Brexit, particularly as we are all at one on that matter. I wish the Government every success in that regard and it has our full support. However, matters are different when it comes to how the Government treats those who cannot treat themselves. It will never be normal. As I said, we will not be seen as part of the establishment. The Irish people must regain a bit of trust in the political and democratic system and see that we are not all the same. We can do things differently. We will offer help where we can and we hope that what suggest will be taken on board. It is time for an extraordinary solution to an extraordinary crisis.
