Sunday Independent Sensible Statement of the Week August 14, 2016Posted by guestposter in Uncategorized.
Garibaldy is away and it seemed time to give credit where credit is due. So let’s turn to an important column by Gene Kerrigan (who else?) which gets to the heart of how things have actually changed.
Since the general election, the right has struggled to overwhelm and cancel the outcome of proportional representation. The whole circus that had to be put together to build a ramshackle minority government is about allowing the right to dominate both the Government and the opposition benches.
Too often, the media lets them get away with it. FG does something – the media ask FF for the opposition view. Don’t they know all this, including the little arguments and confrontations between FF and FG, have been worked out behind closed doors?
Democracy, please, not choreography.
Any of the more usual sorts of statements from the Sunday Independent are welcome in comments.
