Recalling 1990 gives us a useful perspective - The Irish Times - Fri, Oct 29, 2010
TWENTY YEARS ago, we were about to enter the final week of the election campaign that delivered Irelandís first woman president.....
I remember...so well...answering the door to an FF canvasser...and assuring him that irrespective of late night phone calls to the Aras I had no intention on God's planet of ever voting for Brian. He went away...comforted(??)
20 years later I will no doubt have his son calling to my door(or his lackeys posting his "stuff")..so much has changed and so much has in fact stayed the same!
20 years ago I worked in an acute Dublin Hospital with beds closed...the health budget slashed...cos we were apparently living " beyond our means"......!!
Oh Good Jays*s.....nowt has changed...or has it???
