Stable government needed to get country moving

On the 100th anniversary of the Rising have we substituted the British flag for the EU one with a €200bn government debt. We have lost our financial independence and the ability to govern ourselves.

We cannot even conclude a national budget on our own without referring to the ECB and the IMF and what future are we inflicting on the next generation. Do we think any future government will act any differently with their cushy jobs and getting paid before they even form a government while they squander our independence.

We need a stable government to take the bull by the horns and get this country up and running and look after our local fishermen and keep foreign boats out of Irish waters. That’s what the men and women of 1916 fought for and gave their lives.
