I am led to believe that the Irish Central Bank are ready to fire their enforcement cannons at certain banks, but are awaiting the strategic order from their commander Michael Noonan. ( it's election time folks! )The Government have no fear of any realistic protest movement.
The water issue was obvious even to the most blind. Once 'rent-a-crowd' took over 'decent middle class' exited.
The banking issue - people didn't feel they knew enough to get involved. Obvious now that nobody did.
Once one has a house, education fro children and can survive - that is it. They have enough to do apparently.
'Move on - nothing to see here'.
