It is plain to see: A clean break is needed. The people who got Ireland into the financial mess are not the people to get Ireland out of the mess.
It is instantly recognizable to anyone outside Ireland looking in that the people running Ireland are culpable, protecting their own interests, panicking, reactive, and not hands-on. No foresight; no inspired thinking; and certainly no tangible plan of action except to wring more tax monies out of the ordinary honest to God decent people who are being made to pay for the recklessness of others.
What so many rogue chancers continue to away with is just mind numbing stuff. The Galway Tent elite have short-changed Ireland, and since they continue as the main backers of the FF dominated Government, any appeal by the same Government to patriotic zeal as a means to get us out of the mess is wholly disingenuous. It is they who sub-let this “great little nation“(sic) to their financial cohorts, who have almost pillaged our country in the name of a fast buck. It’s time to rid ourselves of FF and for the President, acting in the national interest, to convene people with clean hands who have the capability to turn Ireland around. This Government hasn’t been on Mars for the past ten years, they are so incriminated in this government. Bring the best brains (there are plenty of them in the shadows) into the centre of Government…. and if they are not TDs, make them senators. Roll up the sleeves, a clean break is needed.
And the way of wishful thinking behind this little diatribe? Reading and watching the news is bad for your health. We’re all left feeling anxious, depressed, confused, irritated and angry about it. Doubtless the state broadcaster here would wholeheartedly agree with such sentiments, thus reaffirming the reasoning behind why it continually churns out only positive news about the Great Middle Kingdom (sic). However, I take the view we are living in a bad world anyway and I chose not to bury my head in the sand and stay informed.
