Many who voted in the election believe they voted for “change” but in fact haven’t. These New Unhappy Lords have no loyalty to the Nation.Whilst many voted and gave them a “mandate”, thousands more didn’t.Ireland and the Irish people deserve better. We certainly agree with the sentiment below that the new boss is the same as the old boss.

Enda Kenny will lead a deeply unpopular government. It is a government that will continue with the Fianna Fail project. It is a government that will continue to crush the Irish people with a debt burden that is beyond comprehension.
Hundreds of thousands of people will be driven into debilitating poverty. Hundreds of thousands will be forced to emigrate.
The same people who where cheerleading in the media for Brian Cowan and Brian Lenihan are now flying the flag for Kenny and Michael Noonan.
Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
Does anyone seriously think that Kenny and Noonan will be agents of change? Between them, they have been in the Dail for over 75 years. They are embedded in a rotten political culture.
Noonan has got an easy ride in recent times. Do people forget what he did when he was Minister for Health? Noonan persecuted women with Hepatitis C.
He threatened Bridgit McCole on her death-bed with a hefty costs bill if she didn’t accept the compensation offered to her.
That was what Noonan was like when he was in power.
Fine Gael has always been the party of the south Dublin barristers, the wealthy farmers, schoolteachers and auctioneers of rural Ireland.
It is is the party of Peter Sutherland, an utter-capitalist who has resided in the belly of the beast with Goldman Sachs, BP and Royal Bank of Scotland.
It has always been the party of privilege and many within its ranks have contempt for the working classes. Fine Gael did have its liberal phase under Garret Fitzgerald – but it was no more than a passing fad,
At heart,it is a right-wing party and that will become clearer soon.
