The Coalition of Confusion is Implementing Contradictory Restrictions at great Cost to Society.

Aontú Leader and Meath West TD Peadar Tóibín has hit out at the masse of contradictions in the current Covid-19 restrictions being put in place by the government, and has stated that restrictions based on vaccination status would create a second class citizenship for young people.


An Teachta Tóibín:


“Ireland has been a significant outlier in terms of the length and severity of Lockdown. And we have had an enormous amount of illogical contraction. Under the government’s latest proposals A young person can work in a restaurant without a vaccine but can’t eat in the same restaurant.  


The same young person can cross the road to a Wedding with 50 others and eat and drink to their hearts content. But they cant attend a family First Holy Communion of 20 people gathered in their garden.


Yet if you are a teacher, the Governments advice is, just open your windows and you will be fine. The government is losing, if it hasn’t already lost, the people over the contradictory and extreme restrictions”.

The Irish political system is radically broken

In Ireland the vast majority of elected representatives put a finger in the air to check which way the political wind is blowing. They have one eye on their leaders – seeking brownie points – and another eye keeping their seat safe. If elected reps shut up and do as they’re told, they are promoted; if they stand up for what they believe in, they are demoted. No wonder we have the political class we have. No wonder one point one billion euro is being buried in a hole under the National Children’s Hospital and that Stormont is in stalemate.

Throughout Ireland, many people are now afraid to say what they feel, many are afraid to respectfully engage on a range of different topics. Many feel there is a new censorship and a new political correctness in Ireland, that opposition to the establishment is being deleted.

Respectful opposition is not the enemy. Respectful opposition is a critical element of a functional democracy. Aontú will have the backbone to stand up, without fear, for you.
