Wake up Enda and Joan to how ‘war’ weary we all are

The people who demonstrated last weekend sent a message to the Government. 

We are ‘war weary’. Weary of broken election promises, weary of emigration, weary of corruption, weary of scapegoating, weary of austerity, weary of child poverty, of homelessness, of media hype and political footballers. Saturday was the people’s Trojan Horse. The people have decided that enough is enough. They want their country back and are moving centrally and left of centre. Balanced media outlets, such as this newspaper, and some RTÉ journalists and social media outlets, will carry the true story of next Saturday.
