Safeguarding the Comeraghs and electricity
Of course we want to keep pylons away from scenic upland areas. Of course we don't want wind turbines affecting swathes of countryside. Of course we don't want dumps. Of course we don't want incinerators. Of course we don't want: mobile phone towers, restrictions on gathering turf, salmon fishing, water abstraction from the Shannon. Of course we want decentralisation to every constituency, of course we want to be able to build any bungalow anywhere.

And of course it's our right to have electricity when the price of gas triples, and it's our right to have a rubbish collection and it's our right to have mobile phones and free water and free local services.

And of course we don't remember what happens when we voted for 20 years of opportunistic politics where there's never a reasoned choice or a least worst decision and of course we don't even remember that we are borrowing nearly a billion a month and thousands are in negative equity.
