The unpalatable truth is that we’re hurtling towards a banana republic of gombeenism.
This is the view expressed by Ivan Yates in today’s Irish Independent. The truth is we are not hurtling towards banana republic status, we reached that point at least fifty years ago.
Yates worked for years in the political system as a TD and minister. He has worked for years in the media as a broadcaster and as a political analyst and yet his knowledge of what’s going on in our country is at least fifty years behind reality.
That’s how bad things are in our country.
