The country is crying out for leadership and good government!
The opposition are hopeless and offer no new way forward.
The rest of us sit on our hands and whine that somebody should be doing something about it.
Forming a new party has been suggested on several occasions but the history of new parties in this country leaves a lot to be desired.
My idea is that we should use the courts to hold politicians and administrations to account.
If enough of the people of this country cared enough to give a euro per head per week to a fund, the purpose of which would be to haul the powers that be before the courts to account for 4 or 5 of their decisions per year, then we might get somewhere.
For instance, if some organization or individual had the money and the inclination to take an action against the government over the continued storage of the now useless e-voting machines for instance, would the present legal set -up allow them to bring a case?
We need a third tier of democracy.
The Dail is corrupt and moribund!
The Seanad are next to useless and a waste of money
Could the courts be used to clean the whole sorry mess up, give it a good kick in the arse and set it on a clean, efficient path.
Lest you worry, I speak as someone who has a healthy skepticism of lawyers and judges also.
