Greens and the M3

Here’s some great quotes of Cuffe guff from Ciaran Cuffe, circa 2005, re M3 motorway. “The sanctioning of the motorway is too high a price to pay for progress”, and “Approving the road in its proposed location would be an act of cultural and historic vandalism”. Yes, indeed! And he continues: “How much of Ireland’s history is this Government prepared to sacrifice on the altar of economic growth? ” So, you’d think he’d do something about it then, wouldn’t you?

I am reminded of the final passage of Animal Farm, where the animals look in on the pigs as they entertain the local farmers to a big feast. Four legs good, two legs better.
