What does it mean when you have a leader who has dicky finances – and gets re-elected ?
What does it mean when you have a leader who has severe monetary amnesia – and gets re-elected ?
What does it mean when you build a motorway through a national monument – and a newly elected Green Minister sanctions it ?
What does it mean when you do an opinion poll and people say “Sure I don’t care if he took a small bit out of the country after all he’s put in” – and then on the other hand, give out about hospital beds being closed due to lack of funds ?
What does it mean when you have a tribunal that goes on for years – and never really does anything at the end of the day ?
What does it mean when you have 3rd world roads and high car tax – and you still vote the incumbents back in ?
What does it mean when you have people dying in ambulances on the way to hospital – and you create the HSE to solve all problems ?
What does it mean when you have a people who will believe a big, huge lie much more easily than they will believe a small one ?
What does it mean when you have a country who goes crazy about the Germans making comments about our society – and you don’t study the comments made but blindly become patriotic and defensive ?
What does it mean when you are truly ashamed of some of the nonchalance and disinterested electorate in your own country …
IT MEANS YOU ARE IN IRELAND … but perhaps, not for much longer …
