I have confidence in this new Government; I’m confident it will look after the rich and powerful as FF and FG did in the past. And congrats to the Greens , who finally got to reintroduce wolves into one habitat – they reintroduced the austerity wolves of FF and FG back into Government
Regarding the climate & biodiversity measures in the proposed Programme for Government, “..YOU CAN FOOL YOURSELVES BUT YOU CAN’T FOOL SCIENCE, AND YOU CAN’T FOOL NATURE”. There is nothing in the Programme but pious phrases and ticking boxes – its a betrayal of the Climate Movement. I say to those who are sincere – don’t Greenwash this betrayal. Better to build the movement against #climatechange etc, on the streets, among the youth, in our communities, than believe FF/FG’s snake-like spin.
Topics discussed were the long-awaited ‘Programme for Government’, and the future for the FF/FG/Greens coalition; racism in Ireland, masking up to beat Covid and the issue of education in the context of Covid
Brid is on with a Fine Gael rep and the debate centres on issues surrounding Covid, re-opening after lockdown, new government coalition possibilities, the issue of extending maternity leave and the Covid payment.
