The majority didn't vote for a Left-wing agenda
The Government needs to snap out of its torpor and stop allowing marginal politicians to dictate the agenda
Politics in Ireland has gone haywire. Increasingly it seems like what should matter a lot doesn't matter and what shouldn't matter is all that matters.
Water charges for a normal household would net out at €160 a year. Yet it has convulsed the country for the last few years and continues to do so. It's ridiculous.
And yes, yes, it's easy for comfortably-off people like me to dismiss €160 a year, but some people just can't pay it. And it is, apparently, the greatest injustice ever committed on the poor Irish, the most oppressed people in the world ever.
