None of political parties will introduce reform

The European Central Bank letter was a ‘gun to our heads’. But Fianna Fail was the political party that put us in the bailout.

Fianna Fail ruined this country then, and had done so for decades before, and now Fine Gael/Labour are ruining it, with scandal after scandal.

We still have no reforms and no democratic revolution.

Fine Gael/Fianna Fail, Sinn Fein/Labour — none of them will introduce political reforms. Only the citizens can bring the changes. And where is the € 1.2 billion in taxes that we paid over the years for a clean, safe water system?
