I think they were vocal, organised and depending on who you got anywhere on the pest to violent scale. Politcians know their onions and the majority might have wanted the 8th gone 20 years ago, but there would still be a loo la throwing piss at your constituency office.At a slight tangent I know but I have heard that the proposal to liberalise divorce laws passed with a vote of 82% in favour?
That's an enormous landslide approval for a proposal in fairness. Also helpful in zeroing in on something that interests me which is the size of the O'Taliban minority in the state.
I've had an idea they are quite a small minority in the state but have traditionally been noisy through communication channels and a privileged position in Irish society. For a long time now I've been suggesting that it could be as low as 3% of the electorate and could be as high as about 15% and possibly wavers between the two markers on the dial depending on the issue.
Or in short, Youth Defence having weaker leadership and less numbers allowed the space for politicians do do their jobs.
