Look the celtic tiger period was unique in the history of this state.What do you mean restore?!?
FFGLAB has always been the one party state, it has never been dislodged.
There was never a time when media were nearly unanimously supporting the government before.
The OP is an attempt to highlight the danger of such an unanimity.
It does not matter which party or parties are involved.
All are human beings and capable of being corrupted by power.
That was demonstrated spectacularly in the celtic tiger period and its collapse was equally spectacular.
The danger now is that the media have not learned any lessons.
The evidence is there.
They have been cheer leading a return to the one party state again and again day after day.
