A song inspired by the Irish Government, apathy and blind allegiance. Recorded by Christy Moore and will appear on his new album, “Lily”, due out on May 20th.
The Irish people make up 1% of the population of Europe, yet we’re paying for 42% of the cost of European banking crisis. We pay over 11 billion (11,000,000,000) each year in interest alone. The capital on these loans is due to be paid in 40 years time by our children and grandchildren. And still many of us treat political parties like football teams, sticking by them through thick and thin, regardless of how they perform. Another 40%+ of us don’t even bother to vote.
