About the Christian and Jobs Action Party

The Christian and Jobs Action Party was founded by John Malone. The tipping point for John was this year 2015 when all the political parties in Dáil Éireann combined to foist the same-sex marriage referendum on the Irish people. “The duty of an opposition is to oppose.” Political choice in Ireland died with that maneuver. The veil dropped and the scramble by these parties not to countenance anything positive in Christian values was shown. But the said maneuver was only one in a long succession. Before it, came the Kenny, Gilmore closing of the Irish Embassy to the Vatican. This Embassy was opened in 1929 and was esteemed for its far reaching work and achievements. In its March 2015 issue the Christian magazine Alive described the present Fine Gael/Labour government as the most anti-Christian and totalitarian in the history of the state, and Fianna Fail under Micheál Martin not much better.

About John Malone

John was born in Dublin. At eight years of age he moved to Boyle, County Roscommon when his father, a member of An Garda Siochana, was stationed there. He completed his secondary school education with the Presentation Brothers in nearby Carrick-on-Shannon, Country Leitrim. After secondary school he worked in administration in a major garage in Dublin.  Opportunities were few and after three years like many others of his and other generations of Irish people, he tasted the bitter cup of immigration when he had to move to London. There he worked with London Underground and the fledgling rival to BBC, Independent Television; thus at close quarters and before many others he perceived the influence a controlling few could have for good or ill on the shaping of public opinion and mores. In due course he returned to Ireland and for the next couple of decades he was in sales traversing the country in succession selling to the beer trade or selling insurance or animal feed stuffs. Eventually he went into business on his own in the latter sector and over twelve years he built up a thriving company. Subsequent to selling that he eased into the quieter waters of retirement. Over the course of his working life John developed a great regard for the owners, operators and staff of Irish family businesses. People who at the outset were his customers quickly became firm friends. He came to see that the small family business's were pillars of rural and suburban Ireland and the conduit to fair prices for Irish farmers and producers. Which in turn gave real value to the consumer. From extensive travel he saw how that pillar was valued on continental Europe but year on year his dismay grew as he saw it disregarded by Ireland’s modernizers and new thinking, many and much of which was in the Fianna Fail Party, a party he had proudly been a member of for many years. John lives on the Meath Cavan border with his wife, and the interests of gardening and oil painting which he and she share are being lost to him as he answers the bugle call to the supreme contest that will be the Dail general election of 2016.
