Suddenly, anything seems possible

Even politics is getting exciting again -- and so, too, are the country's prospects, writes Jody Corcoran

TO SAY that the week just gone was the week when everything changed may not, strictly speaking, be true; although in time it will go down as such.

The truth is that almost everything changed six months ago when, after two years of legitimate anger, most people decided to try and move on.

The mood change was probably borne of weariness with it all and of no little necessity; navel-gazing does not put bread on the table. But it also coincided with a shift in reality; technically, the recession ended at year's end 2009. But it is only after the event that such a moment is recognised.
