Joan Burton, not surprisingly, has welcomed the crushing of Syriza and the imposition of yet more brutal austerity on the Greek people.
In fact, creatures like Burton are gloating over what has happened. They see it as a stick to with which to beat Sinn Fein and the left. And what exactly is she gloating over?
In the past when German imperialism wanted to subjugate a people and plunder their economy they did so with tanks and jackboots.
Now they have the ECB, the EU Commission the Euro zone group of Finance Ministers and the IMF.
She is also gloating over the crushing of the hopes and aspirations of millions of working people in Ireland and Europe who looked to Syriza for a way forward.
What cold cruelty, what ruthlessness, and what a shower of bastards they are. Burton and her ilk daily drag the tradition of Connolly and Larkin, who founded the Labour Party, through the mud.
We have to reclaim that tradition from these traitors. I appeal to all working people; help us in building a new political movement of working people to realise the vision of Connolly and Larkin.
