Thread: Little media coverage of case against the government

  1. #1

    Default Little media coverage of case against the government

    Unlawful spend on children

    Given the government's daily debacle on he economy or abortion, this story has gained little attention. Waters has a great point. The government spent money illegally and given the small margin at the end it isn't difficult to say that the illegally bought the electorate's vote. It would be a great day for our democracy if Waters forces a re-vote.

    Not often I'd agree with him. It was a shameful breach of the McKenna judgement. I wouldn't hold my breath though. The dust has settled now.

    Waters is a crackpot and it is a pity the IT give him a platform as there are plenty coherent and intelligent conservatives out there.

    In this incidence whilst the govt was very wrong, it is silly to claim with certainty that this spend decided the vote

    The government and media do not respect our democracy. They consider voting as your opportunity to agree with their position, nothing more. If you dont agree you'll be given as many opportunities as possible to get it right. That is not democracy, that is coercion(The threat of further harm may lead to the cooperation or obedience of the person being coerced).

    Would saying 'If you vote no, There'll be no money in the ATMs and there'll be chaos and you'll starve etc etc' be considered coercion?

    I think so.

    I find that taking a stance thats the polar opposite to the wafler waters's own position suits me well.

    Isn't that a sad indictment of the Irish public that a government can illegally take and spend our money in order to buy our votes?
