Change is not born through apathy

category national | elections / politics | other press author Thursday April 15, 2010 01:34author by Craig McInerney Report this post to the editors

A change in the Irish economy can only occur with a dramatic change in our political landscape.

Political leadership having the intellectual capacity of a door knob, is usually a prerequisite for change. However Ireland appears to be going through a form of transformation inertia, where the inability of a ruling party is not met with political upheaval, but a muffled whimper.

Political upheaval does not have to take the form of lynch mobs and flaming torch processions, conversely what is needed is a decent alternative. A change form a Fianna Fail government to a Fine Gael led coalition government is not an alternative, it's a deformed substitution.
