Rainbow Coalition was our best hope

I refer to Justin Colgan's jibe regarding the Rainbow Coalition Government 1994--1997 in your edition of December 15. Perhaps Mr Colgan is unaware that the Rainbow Coalition he refers to was the best Government this country ever had -- and that Government took over the country in a dire state; it had the biggest surplus in the State's history when leaving office and unemployment was falling rapidly at that time.

Had that Government been returned to office, the country would not now be in the Third World state it is in.

Just take a look at what replaced that Government and what they have done to this country.
