Remember, not long ago this was the mantra of the political mob in this country of all political hues. The Senate was for the scrap-heap the higher earners would pay more. What happened, well an election a changing of the political chairs Has anything really changed!! no all the promises forgotten. Just one or two examples student fees Labour was against them in opposition,now Me Quinn (labour) is not talking about abolition but an increase even on the last governments proposals.
While Mr Bruton (fine gael) wishes to cut the wage rates of the poorest workers those in retail and hotels, who generally are paid the worst wages on the market not just here but in Europe. While the rich are bailed out the poorest must pick up their tab. So as you can see the quite clearly we are not in this together and never have being.
Add insult to injury the most undemocratic institution in the state still exists. Those who retire from it will be paid massive pay offs plus a pension for life, paid for by you and me. This institution which you had no vote in electing any of these jumped up individuals of the chattering classes. Yet this crowd will rest on their pensions paid for the cutting of the lower paid.
Enough of these den of thieves. It is beyond time to clear out these august stables and all the filth therein.
Time to bring back a little of the backbone of our fathers and Mothers. We need a party which will not play their games, a party who will not play their games in that Stable Leinster House.
The cutting of wages of the lower paid is but a cynical example of using this capitalist crisis to take workers back to wage slavery, all because of capitals crisis. If we seek to commiserate with our masters they will drive us to an early grave.
It is time not to bend the knee it is time like our brothers in Greece/Portugal to fight. No reliance on the Labour fakirs
only our stenght will do this. It can be done.
