The present water shortage in Dublin has more to do with the overdevelopment of Dublin and the depletion of services in the regions, whereby professional bodies, and organisations were drawn to Dublin by the imbalance of broadcasting which we have had since Radio Éireann was established.
RTÉ ensured Dublin and its attractions were given priority in the central media and are still given priority to this day and getting worse. This one-sided broadcasting which exists in Ireland today, where we have three TV stations being broadcast from Dublin and all singing from a Dublin hymn sheet, while the regions are kept silent with community radio eunuchs, is the real cause of the problem.
In all this charade we have a Dáil which was designed to silence the majority by the whip system and a Dublin-based cabinet setting the rules for the whole country.
Then when the radio stations discuss these problems, who do they bring into the studios, but the very political geeks who are the cause of the problem. It is the one-sided broadcasting system which needs to be targeted.
