Politics in Ireland has gone haywire. Increasingly it seems like what should matter a lot doesn't matter and what shouldn't matter is all that matters.
Water charges for a normal household would net out at €160 a year. Yet it has convulsed the country for the last few years and continues to do so. It's ridiculous.
And yes, yes, it's easy for comfortably-off people like me to dismiss €160 a year, but some people just can't pay it. And it is, apparently, the greatest injustice ever committed on the poor Irish, the most oppressed people in the world ever.
