Micheál Martin and Enda Kenny are not listening. Two teachers at loggerheads have drowned out the sound of the electorate. In the eyes of many, they have turned their backs on the reality of Ireland today.

From the safe vantage of Dáil Éireann and their public service perspective, they fail to see that Civil War politics no longer has relevance to homeless families, parents of emigrants, lone parents and the disabled and unemployed.

The latest polls show that the electorate does not trust the traditional political format. Support for Independents continues to rise.
