George Hook is not impressed by Sinn Fein’s call for a proper banking inquiry after the party announced it had anonymously received a further batch of Anglo Irish Bank tapes (The Right Hook, 6 Nov).
I don’t want to know what happened in the past. I want to know what happens to my grandchildren’s future, will they get a job and I think that is what we have to be looking and seriously considering now.
People operating under this uniquely Irish form of delusion think that if everybody agrees to forget the past then everything will be rosy in the future.
In functional democracies the common mindset understands that the past must first be dealt with, no matter how distasteful, so that the future can be better for everyone.
