Hallelujah, Independent Senator Shane Ross has finally come around to Public Inquiry’s core philosophy – that Ireland is an intrinsically corrupt country.
Speaking on The Saturday Night Show, Ross said that Ireland is a country run by cronies for the benefit of cronies.
Significantly, he also (rightly) claims that a Fine Gael/Labour government will make little difference because they operate within the same (corrupt) system.
This is important because most people/commentators/politicians seem to believe that a FG/Lab coalition will introduce radial reform – they won’t.
Accepting that the situation was extremely serious Ross promises to work on three main reforms.
An end to cronyism.
Renegotiate the IMF deal and burn the bond holders.
Reform the political system.
I genuinely wish him well.
