The same sex marriage ‘yes’ vote paints a picture of “tolerance” and a desire for equity — or does it?
The Carlow/Kilkenny by-election result suggestions something the opposite.
Over 50% of the electorate there voted for the continuance of inequity and unfairness. They voted for cronyism, regressive taxation, taxes levied without ability-to-pay protection, water charges that will force many to ration and for the ever widening socioeconomic gap and much more.
In short they voted for the continuance of governance which tolerates inequity and gross unfairness; one which tolerates poverty for many with children in the vanguard — 138,000 living in privation.
Celebrate? Someone’s having a laugh.
