Do you rate Enda Kenny?
Yes, I think he’s done an excellent job for the country.
With this short sentence Fine Gael TD Eoghan Murphy totally destroyed his credibility.
Murphy was all over the media today telling us how important it was to reform the political system to protect the nation from the terrible prospect of Sinn Fein getting into power.
Before exposing the rank hypocrisy of this politician let’s outline some background to the political system he suddenly sees as needing reform.
The political/administrative system that Murphy supports is 100% responsible for the destruction of our country.
It was this corrupt political/administrative system that drove the country and with it the wealth, dreams and futures of a large percentage of the population over the cliff of despair.
Sinn Fein had absolutely nothing to do with the betrayal of our country; Fine Gael, Fianna Fail and Labour were the chief architects of the catastrophe.
Enda Kenny is the Taoiseach. He announced to the nation that a democratic revolution was in process after the last election, he promised to make the government accountable – He lied.
Deputy Murphy is a political coward because he’s afraid to utter this obvious truth.
Instead, like all of his fellow cowardly colleagues, he makes the arrogant assumption that the people will believe anything and so he tells us that Kenny is too busy to engage in political reform.
Or, to make an analogy – the captain of Titanic is too busy checking accounts to bother about the sinking ship.
On Newstalk (6 min) Murphy told us that this generation of new politicians had a responsibility to reform how politics was done.
He cited the ramming through of legislation establishing Irish Water in just three hours as an example of how undemocratic politics has become.
We should have had the courage of our convictions, to stand up and say, we’re not going to be abused this way.
The problem is that Murphy and his fellow cowards didn’t stand up, they did allow themselves and democracy and the Irish people to be abused by our corrupt political/administrative system just as generations of politicians have done over the decades.
Neither did the coward stand up when the ‘busy’ Taoiseach’ abused democracy with his interference in the bank inquiry.
The coward again failed to stand up for his convictions when the ‘busy’ Taoiseach was abusing democracy over the McNulty scandal.
Now, suddenly, with Sinn Fein becoming ever more powerful the coward has begun to grow a pair of balls or, more accurately, a pair of self-protection balls.
I trust Enda Kenny, I trust Joan Burton, I trust all (the current politicians who are in power) but if a new government came in (Sinn Fein) and the Dail could not keep that new government to account I think that would be very worrying.
We have to think about putting protections into our political system for the future.
Murphy’s mindset tells us how warped political thinking has become in our blighted country.
He fully supports Taoiseach Enda Kenny, the current leader of our corrupt political/administrative system, the system that destroyed the country and continues to abuse both democracy and the people.
He agrees that political reform is needed but not for the good of the people, the country or democracy.
No, he wants reform because the corrupt system he supports is in danger of being wiped out by a new political force that may actually tell the truth, may actually work for the good of the country and its people instead of betraying every democratic principle in existence.
