The absence of a fully involved and impartial press is notable. The water tax result of 57% got barely a mention at the end of the RTE evening news, today when the result was given.
Environment Minster Alan Kelly told Denis o Brien station Newstalk this morning (date?) that one way or another, “everyone will pay” their bill. This is someone who is elected to be a representative. This is totally out of touch with the people. He goes on to compare the situation with Syriza and says “Look what happened to them”. He comes across as a bully. It is the same narrative that has been presented by the government since the the beginning. It’s tired and old.
