Good news for people hoping for political reform and honest politics in Ireland. Lucinda Creighton “hasn’t gone away, you know”. Today a new interview with her appeared in Dublin’s Sunday Independent in which she suggested that Ireland’s current malaise of corruption and double standards was infecting the entire party system there, not just Fine Gael, the party which denied her the right to vote according to her conscience and sacked her.

“There is a complete absence of intellectual rigour in party politics as it now operates. It is a palace of zombies where people who are elected give up their faculties and capacities for independent thought.”
