Bruton has hard neck insulting us

Madam – The anger I feel after reading the comments of John Bruton has probably laid another layer of cynicism on my already corroded soul.

Mr Bruton chastises the media and the plain people for lacking "forgiveness". Can I remind Mr Bruton that "forgiveness" comes after atonement, acceptance and apology. As Mr Bruton pointed out, "forgiveness" comes after punishment. Which of the people Mr Bruton refers to have been punished? Which of them have admitted their guilt and has apologised for destroying the nation?

Not one politician has been sacked for gross mismanagement. Indeed, we have tax cheats sitting in Dail Eireann. Should we forgive those people, seeing as they deem themselves to have done nothing wrong in the first place?
