Banana republics and Ireland

Anthony has a mega-post detailing what he calls the denial pervasive in Ireland with regard to the dysfunctional nature of our so-called democracy. For sheer quotes alone it is worth a read.

The Financial Times is correct, Ireland is a banana republic. It is a corrupt state not just because of the extent of corruption throughout every level of society but more critically because of the complete failure of state agencies, including the body politic, to take effective measures to root out the disease.
