BE ALL THINGS TO ALL VOTERS: Sinn Fein have been so busy making a show and a meal out of the exotic sauces, condiments & spices, that they only now seem to have noticed that The National Party are nibbling at the chips, and are even eyeing up the whole burger. In what appears to be a strange policy turn around, on page 70 of their election manifesto, Sinn Fein espouse a tough immigration policy.
How will this new bombshell policy fit in with “An Ireland for all” in two weeks time? Could this be the reason that FF and SF have ruled out a coalition government already? However, while it would be nice if SF had gotten the populist memo, their stated aim is still “the building of a new republic based on the principles of freedom, justice and equality.” We all know “equality” means the lowest common denominator in a globalised world – no room for independent republics or a diversity of ethnostates there…
Indeed, how can they implement the undemocratic All Party Report they signed and still have their own policy on it? No wonder it is buried deep in the manifesto on page 70:
If they are taking into account our infrastructure capacities, then Sinn Fein should sensibly keep Ireland within its means, they would freeze immigration and deport the 80% failed asylum seekers we still fund. However if they implement the All Party Report they signed, we will have wide open borders. So the first paragraph is at odds with the last paragraph…
But then again Fianna Fail’s own logo, to this very day still sports the “The Republican Party” slogan! How on earth does this fit with the sellout Ireland For All policy? Michaél Martin himself being infamous for stating in the Dail that “Sovereignty is a backward concept!”
Is this not the reality of politics today? With such blatant lies, is it any wonder that more than half of people in the Western World say Democracy has failed?
It is a well known thing amongst politicians, especially in the run up to an election, that candidates must be “all things to all people” on the doorstep. So if you don’t like a certain Shinner or FF or FG policy, that’s fine…
They’ll be back tomorrow with a new one and once in power, thanks to their glib lies, all will be forgotten and it will be back to the wholesale selling out of Ireland to the globalist profiteers, for personal gain.
They will say whatever they think you want to hear or is in their interest at any given moment and can change that position like the wind.
World leaders love to toot the horn of democracy. Telling lies as usual. To take just three recent examples, Angela Merkel, Justin Trudeau and even Barack Obama have all bragged about how great their own country’s democracies are. This might be what they claim, but if only their own people agreed.
According to research published this week by the Bennett Institute for Public Policy, a think tank based at the University of Cambridge, people do not agree. The findings were borne by asking citizens a simple question; whether they were satisfied or dissatisfied with democracy in their countries. Surveys conducted between 1973 and 2020 were analysed.
In total, the question was posed to over 4 million people. By combining all of these sources they were able to outline the changing perceptions of democracy over the past 25 years worldwide, and over the past 50 years in Western Europe.
And the results were unequivocal. Wherever in the world you look, you will find democracy in a deep state of abuse and malaise.
Overall, since the mid-1990’s, the number of people who say they are “dissatisfied” with democracy has increased by almost 10 percentage points from 47.9% to more than half, 57.5%. That figure is the highest in the time taken in by the study, and last year, 2019, is the year with the highest level of democratic discontent on record.
In developing countries around half of people are dissatisfied with democracy in their countries—a huge figure, although this represents only a slight increase in the last 25 years. The authors believe that poorer countries received an injection of positivity from their brand new democracies, but as people see their countries slide back into crime and corruption it is beginning to wear off. 25 years after the “Rainbow Nation” came about in South Africa, paraded as a showboat of “democracy”, it has slid 3 places in the continents financial indices and is a literal sh*thole with 56 murders every day, a rape every six seconds, rampant corruption with ALL public services and government owned enterprises bankrupt! Yet still the masses think they have “democracy” and continue to vote for the corrupt ANC regime, despite its obvious inability to govern.
The decline in sentiment however is particularly severe in developed countries ( Europe, North America, East Asia and Australasia). Here, the proportion of people dissatisfied with democracy in their country has increased, from one-third to half, over the last 25 years—an average increase of around 17 percentage points. Ironically, and unsurprisingly, faith in democracy peaked in 2005, right before the onset of the global economic recession.
Across the water in the UK, Brexit has unsurprisingly absolutely tanked faith in democracy. It had been going steadily ever since the 1970s, despite the wobbles in the Blair era after the Iraq War and an MPs’ expenses scandal.
