James Connolly, the great Irish revolutionary, once said,
”The great only seem great because we are on our knees. Let us Arise.”
What better words to sum up in what has happened to Ireland’s future?
The great were the people we were meant to look upon as the masters of financial wizardry. They were the untouchables. Now workers in Ireland find that they have to pay for the greed of a few.
Fianna Fáil, the bastion of government over the past seventy years, is facing political oblivion. But a Fine Gael dominated government led by Enda Kenny and propped up by labour will not deliver real change.
This is why Gino Kenny and People Before Profit have joined the United Left Alliance, which includes Joe Higgins MEP and Richard Boyd Barrett.
