Meet the new boss -- same as the old boss

THE latest revelations about the Government have once again disgraced Irish politics. Seeing so many TDs betraying the electorate has led me to lose all respect for the Government.

During the election, Fine Gael's Ciaran Cannon promised us that his party would "fix our political system and sweep away the culture of cronyism". This man now employs his wife as his personal secretary and his brother-in-law as a personal driver.

Mr Cannon obviously has no respect for his constituents. As of now, I have no respect for Mr Cannon or his colleagues in Leinster House. I voted for change in the general election and I realise now that I have been failed by yet another government. I feel let down as a voter and as a proud Irish citizen.
