Kevin Myers: Things could get worse and they will get worse unless we now show some calm resolve
HISTORY is becoming irreversible. Sometimes one can revisit a decision, but not in a time of flux, when the water vanishes over the weir's edge. The Green Party -- with that stupid idiot balancing a child on his knee at its press conference -- truly Palin into insignificance, will soon pass over their weir.
What the rest of us need now is calm resolve, such as the Greens lacked this week. There is a terrible dearth of that sterling quality at the moment.
This was exemplified in an article by the former editor of the 'Irish Times', asserting that much of the damaging commentary about us came from British newspapers "that traditionally have been no great friends of Ireland".
