Political threesome would be terrifying

Four years gone and still no democratic revolution and the number of political reforms is a pittance.

But there has been no shortage of referenda on issues of no importance, and the Government has gone into overdrive on the marriage-equality vote, which is another distraction from more meaningful issues.

Meanwhile, Fianna Fáil have got the hots for Fine Gael and Labour are jealous.

To be honest, I would be more concerned about this threesome than about equal rights for LGBT citizens.

Stop voting for Fine Gael/Fianna Fail/Labour and Sinn Fein, if you want reform and the craziness of the Celtic Tiger never to return.
