Steen and Co from the Iona is really the way forward allright.Why not dig up Charles John McQuaid and get the politicians to go back to kissing his "ring".Reopen the laundries and industrial schools,get another acre of land in Tuam to bury the innocents.Its out of the **** we have come.FFS.
Ha ha. God forbid. I was trying to say that the Steens and Co would be part of this. They would bring a certain cohort with them. Rural Ireland, older, maybe less educated though not entirely. FG and FF would have a fair few in their ranks that would fit in as too would some well known Independents with a national profile. Most political parties are anyway a broad range. I can see an articulate conservative appearing in the next 2/3 years. Yes, you need a 'personality'. No bull**** delivery and giving it back in spades to the media. They will tap into the ordinary worker's malaise with all things around them. The inability of young people to buy a house on average incomes, the growing realisation of people in their 50 and 60s who are not prepared at all for retirement. I could go on. Basically the increasing shift between the haves and the have nots.
