Well that was the year of the water charges or was it? If they'd given everyone an adequate allowance to begin with it would probably have passed off without too much fuss but in what can only be described as a mad attack of greed and incompetence they managed to hole the thing below the waterline and if you'll pardon the pun or whatever, it's shipping water fast A letter to the Meath Chronicle a while back said it was a mathematical certainty it would sink and hard to disagree. Listening to a bit of the Pat Kenny show this morning somebody mentioned the Merrion Square set and you could probably add to that their friends in the media. It's hard to switch on the radio or television or pick up a newspaper without tripping across them and the problem is they reflect back to the powers that be an ideal or image that is as far removed from reality as you can get. Perhaps it suits their paymasters but this time they managed to get one hundred thousand people out on the streets on a number of occasions. No mean feat. Wishful thinking is all to the good but not if you're a politician and want to get reelected. The above followed on from the medical card fiasco and the so called property or household tax and if one more of them tells me it's how they do things elsewhere... Well if you don't own what you pay for what does that make you? As the Americans say go figure it out! That aside, have a happy and prosperous New Year!!
