Apart from more Rapism/Plantation in your face & more Homosexual activity in your face- what does this bunch actually stand for?
Why are decent Patriots/Democrats in their Grassroots & above having anything to do with them?
The thing is that in general Irish people are not very interested in politics; all well and good but once you have yourself wrapped up in something like the European Union politics becomes very interested in you. One of the reasons for the out break of the Troubles was that the old Unionist Ruling Class had made itself impossible at all to respect and you are seeing a very similar situation develop now in the ROI. Who has any genuine respect for Enda and The ISIS Times? Who with any real spirit or creativity no matter how hungry for power would want to get involved with them? As what is acceptable to the consensus of Official Ireland continues to narrow it more and more discredits itself in the eyes of very many people. It could be argued that they are sleep walking towards their over throw.They are just a herd of horrible careerists, converging on synthetic NGO causes which carries with it a windfall in cash and the salute of foolish people who buy into the whole NGO carnival. Meanwhile actual belt and braces causes that concern real people and which require actual work to tackle, gets bundled down the priority list.
Basically these rural hicks, middle class lobotomy acts and brute gangsters infatuated with memories of being smooched by the slick charm of Bill Clinton are each trying in their own way to ape the urbane style of the US Democratic party. It's a shambolic and obvious pretence.
Of course not, its far more important for Ministers Like Lord Ross to fly to Rio.I normally don't have much time for retired detective Gerry O'Carroll.
But he made a good point on Radio today. He said Irish government has taken no notice of the latest murder of an innocent Irish man in the gangland murder in Spain. Government basically don't give a damn.
Irish politics is becoming more and more irrelevant to ordinary people.
