Enough is Enough: It's time to go lads.

Just a quick question: exactly what do you have to do in order to get sacked from Bertie Ahern's cabinet? Seriously, I'd really like to know. What depths of incompetence, stupidity and arrogance need to be plumbed before the Taoiseach steps in and says 'this isn't good enough'? But he won't say that because we won't make him, no matter how grave the error - and do errors get any more grave than the rape law nightmare that's engulfed the government? The sick, dangerous inferiority complex that seems to be encoded in our culture has us convinced that we don't deserve better than the shambles that has passed for government in this country over the last number of days.

This government should resign en masse, and let the country adjudicate on who we want to protect the citizens of this state. Their authority, their credibility, and our already faltering trust in their ability to run the institutions of the state has been irrevocably shattered. There is no recourse left but for the Taoiseach to resign his party from the government as a demonstration that he acknowledges the severity of the constitutional, legal and political crisis that he and his cabinet just let happen on their watch. Anything else is just an insult to us.
