According to media reports, the political situation seems to be that the political grouping who were in power for the period of the Celtic Tiger have refused to participate in government.
If the roof had not fallen in on the Celtic Tiger we would probably have had a seventh successive re-election of that particular grouping at the last election. That is because a large segment of the all powerful media, which had and still has enormous power to determine public opinion, supported their re-election again and again.
During the boom that resulted in these powerful people getting arrogant and feeling themselves indispensible.
These same people who bankrupted the country during the boom are at present being cheered in their refusal to go into government by a large segment of the same media that supported them for years during the boom.
Is this in the much proclaimed ‘national interest’?
