Well done Phil — now let’s get to business

On Wednesday in Dail Eireann, the first chapter of the new history of this country was written. We hope that with the introduction of this new Government that an end of public service gombeenism is in sight. Taoiseach Kenny in his inaugural speech spoke of the need for the Government and the governed to move closer and he acknowleged that to do that, he needs to build up trust, and to build that, he will use the rare commodity of truth. It is something that has been in rare supply in recent years. He must acknowledge too that politicians are in the Last Chance Saloon when it comes to honesty and integrity, and that his Government, more than ever, will have to be seen to be above party politics if it is to achieve what needs to be done. If it fails, it will go down in smoke, and with it, the body politic.

The chance of change must not be squandered

Last Chance Saloon

Nest Friday may well be a defining date in the history of this nation. In the future history students will study the economic collapse of the early years of this millennium and our response to the challenge. Who we vote for next week will have a defining influence on the shape of our future. The question is, for whom do we vote? My analysis is based on national issues because we must cease with the parochial political gombeenery. Vote for the most competent team. Electing local stroke-pullers over competent legislators is the root cause of our problems.
