It’s Pissing Down Recovery Outside

The young far right wing Fine Gael ideologue, Noel Rock, is about twenty metres from my house this morning. He is standing at a junction with a poster of himself (really) and giving thumbs up to the drivers passing by. His grin saying “Yep, look it’s me, the guy from the poster!”. Apart from creating a hazard, Noel’s keeping the Recovery going, I think…

Minister for the Government Jet and best boy in right wing class, Paschal Donohoe, (apologies to Simon Harris) is on the wireless, telling me that by building the economy for the tax averse Multinational Companies (MNC’s) we will start to feel the recovery, if we’d just be patient. He’s referring to the fallacy of Trickle Down Economics. He’s keeping the recovery raining down…

The enda apologist specialist, Frances Fitzgerald, is explaining how the Taoiseach was only referring to Fianna Fail people when he called the citizens of Castlebar “All Ireland Champion Whingers”. She has decided this issue is a distraction and that we need to move on to her FEARS. We need to be worried about the chaos and instability that may stem from the possibility of NOT voting for her far right party. She’s “deeply concerned” that not enough people are concerned by her FEARS. Why aren’t the electorate having the “shit scared out of them” by the threat of Representative Democracy? She’s keeping the recovery in trepidation…

Free Market Capitalist, Michael Noonan, is lecturing Yanis Varoufakis again. He’s positively wallowing in the Greek people’s misery and calling Yanis “a failed financial minister”. He’s licking himself for his ingenuity in Socialising Private Debt onto the shoulders of the Irish People via the Undemocratic Promissory Note deal. Mickey is quoting far right BankersGoldman Sachs again to reinforce his own brilliance. He’s keeping the recovery for the 1% going…

Right Wing fantasist ,Taoiseach enda kenny, is roaring, yes roaring, to the party faithful about how they are in “ground war” mode. He’s in bombastic form, passionate and determined. The man with 2 Pints is up for the fight. If only he’d have fought so passionately and determinedly when seeking the Retrospective Recapitalisation that he imagined he’d secured for the country. He’s keeping the recovery going, towards oblivion?

You’ll hear many people argue Fine Gael are not Far Right. They’ll say they’re not even Centre Right, that they are in fact, a moderate left of centre party! This is a lie! It’s a lie of convenience. It soothes the guilt of greed. It allows the “I’m Alright Jack” pretend he is socially conscious. Sure didn’t we “allow gay marriage”. One swallow does not make a summer lads.

Let’s run a fact check. Far Right Ideology hallmarks are:

The Mistreatment of Refugees and Migrants — we have modern day internment camps in Direct Provision and are looking to start “limiting welfare payments for future migrants”. Are migrants lesser Humans?

Human Rights Breaches — see the U.N’s view on the 8th amendment. Women are lesser in the eyes of the law.

Freedom of Speech — this is the Government that stifled investigations into scandals, think Siteserv, IBRC and Moriarty. Free Market CapitalistDenis O’Brien was even allowed silence the Dail!

Democratic Right to Protest — remember iPhone Joan, Jobstown and thesinister fringe smearing of protesters. They don’t like dissent. There are more Gardai at water meter installations than at crime scenes.

Free Market Ideology –The Mortgage Rates and Repossession debacle; allowing Standard Variable Rates customers be gouged at rates double or triple the EU average.

Social Protection — the death by a thousand cuts to public services in order to service €8bn of Debt Interest repayments, not to mention additional taxes, all while bringing schemes to reduce MNC’s effectivetax rates to 2%.

Check, check, check, check, check and check. Fine Gael are a Far Right Wing party. Vote for your pocket, forget the rest. As long as I’m Alright Jack. Until one day little Sophia comes home…

Imagine if Politics was taught in primary school. Imagine if little Sophia came home and said “Daddy, Teacher said Right Wing Capitalism Greedy Guts is responsible for imperialism, slavery, war, famine, social inequality, the wealth divide and climate change. We’re not nasty Right Wing Ideological Capitalists, sure we’re not Daddy?”

“Daddy?..”
