Letters to the Editor

History is very important as it records the actions of people. It is an account of the behaviour of people and their interactions with each other. It is also an excellent indication of what certain political groups and ideologies will deliver if elected.

Political groups that have enjoyed the run of the tax take and the decision-making process of Ireland since the bloody foundation of this State will, I am sure, point to emerging groups and Independents as not having the wherewithal to "run the country".

One thing we can be sure of from the Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael-led governments, based on the evidence of the past, is that the management of the HSE will remain untouched. Neither government, despite many ministers, have changed the personnel at the top.
