It goes along, doesn't it?
The latest example came just last night. The government knew the latest 'Final - so far' Bank bailout cost. It refused to tell the Dáil. At the time the representatives of us the people were being asked to extend the guarantee. They voted Tá.
The figure is then given to the media this morning.
This is patent contempt for parliamentary democracy. In a way, so what - but the second point may have more resonance.
That is this - when we see the well paid and resourced people in 'Opposition' in Leinster House taking this contempt lying down, giving the process a fake credibility by participating in the charade, and we compare their inaction with Mixer Truck Man we have really only one response. He is right and they are wrong. A response only heightened by the fools in FG who break the silence inside the railings (silence maintainted by a mortarfied FF) to give out about the driver and accuse him of doing things he did not even do. They should have been outside the gates yesterday showing up the guarantee vote for the sham it was.
When parliamentary democracy is subverted what does history suggest to us happens next?
