The duplicity of the government knows no bounds. Enda Kenny has ‘ruled out’ a referendum on the issue of Irish Water.
Instead, he promises to enact further ‘tough legislation’ to ensure it can never be privatised. Isn’t there double-lock legislation already in place supposed to accomplish this?
Any ‘tough’ legislation enacted by today’s government can be as easily undone by any future government should they wish to do so. Kenny has had no problem setting up a commission to suggest referenda on a number of issues, and could easily run an Irish water referendum alongside any of these.
If he won’t accede to the demands of democracy, he himself is not fit for purpose,.
