With the publication of the Mahon Report, in which he concluded, “that corruption was rife at every level of the political system.” Is it not then time to look at the political system itself. After all, if our system which was fashioned by these same individuals that have been exposed as having been self-serving, corrupt and for the wont of a better word, gangsters. Is it not fair to assume that the system that they would have been responsible for adapting is also corrupt? Designed to either aid themselves, by ensuring that they find themselves in positions to influence decisions for self gain or to aid the people whose pockets they were only too willing to occupy. It has to be concluded that when introducing new bills and if faced with a decision to either favour the citizens of this country or to feather their own nests then the latter options would have taken preference every time Is it not just common sense to think so? Therefore, what is the point of clearing out the corrupt politicians but to leave the system that they built, intact? A system that excludes not only the majority of people in the county but also by placing power exclusively in the hands of those that sit at the cabinet table excludes our elected representatives that sit on the back benches. Ireland is not a Democracy it is an Oligarchy, one built on corruption, and it’s time for change.
