Let’s take back our self-respect
SEAN Place correctly identifies one of the risks, or the possible reality, of Ireland’s loss of independent status (Irish Independent, October 29).
Angela, the Iron Chancellor, is flexing her Lisbon muscles once again while our political chancers just mutter incoherent nonsense. The Irish people risk becoming vassals to a multiplicity of masters – the EU, the US and NATO – each with their own competing agendas.
Until recent years, Ireland had a proud history of promoting genuine international peace and economic development, while carefully avoiding destructive military entanglements. Now our Government has created an economic mess at home while contributing to military chaos internationally.
