Accountability Corruption Court Cover-up Fianna Fail Fine Gael JobPath Labour Law Politics

We need fresh thinking and better actions.

I don’t think there is any person who is overall political ware, that does not know one of the biggest fundamental problems we have in Ireland is a dramatic terrifying lack of proper accountability.
.
At the same time, accountability is one of the biggest issues that all the main stream parties continue to dance around, at the fringes, to this very day. All will barely speak about accountability and even less will practice it or see its carried out to any decent extent.
.
That is fundamentally why I setup UnitedPeople. It is a party that wishes to address all the basic and vital aspects we all meet in daily life – but along the way, also at same time inserting far greater accountable protocols – then to back them up, additional inserting rewards and punishments to those that carry them our or drag their heels.
.
This is unique thinking outside of the traditional box of old, out of date Irish politics. We are loving and straining to live in a year ending 2020 – but meanwhile, moving forward in terms of accountability we are not. Our elected persist the same fundamental practices of 100 years prior to today.
.
This has got to change as has our thinking as voters. 70+ scandals, cover-ups, law breaking, report burying, politicsl u-turning that continues further abuses, etc, is simply not good enough and more – especially when same can come in nine months. By any standards, this is just ridiculous.
.
Our old parties simply won’t do what’s right. They vote motions of confidence in leakers, back their foe in other national and international law breaking, they ruin their own party along with abusing citizens of as they incredibly back their actual long time enemies who at next election will be just that again, throwing insults.
.
Simply put and seen by any sane brain, what they do is madness – and they continuously get away with it because they know there is not enough accountability protocols in place to stop them. It’s very clear why they don’t rush to change this. So they can continue more of their unbelievable but all too real, greed, ego, power-tripping crap.
.
We must stop supporting them. It is not rocket science to understand why! It is an action of self protection for those you love and yourself, if you are to wake up and pull yourself out of the ground where you might have been rooted in parochial voting thinking.
.
Simply put, for us all to have change, it’s our individual thinking that must change first before we ultimately put pen to voting paper. If voters cannot change their ways, how can we expect our elected to? Seriously!
