News headline on Denis O’Brien’s radio station today.
Today’s budget will leave us all better off.
Millions of words will be written and spoken analysing the budget but it’s all a complete was of time.
The budget is nothing more than a confirmation of what we are as a country.
A disturbingly dysfunctional democracy that has as its centre point, not the good of the nation and its people, but the buying of votes by a corrupt political system that is ruthless to the point of criminality.
The reality headline is:
Ordinary citizens will be bought off as a temporary measure until the corrupt political system is returned to power. When returned to power the corrupt system will resume its abuse of democracy and the people for the benefit of the ruling elite.
