Cheesed off over Harney's views
Published 15/11/2010 | 05:00
Mary Harney's reaction to the regrettable Roscommon cheese-throwing incident makes for very depressing and worrying reading.
She first sought to lecture us by stating that "politics is about choices, it's about argument and a debate", and then went on to give the impression that she actually believes that her privatisation of health-care policy -- and the resulting copperfastening of the two-tier discriminatory system that she is creating -- is part of the "mainstream agenda".
For over two years now, as more and more people have come to see through precisely what she is doing, thousands of people have taken to the streets in protest at her policies -- yet she chooses to ignore that.
