Ireland needs more than just a change of Government, we need to change the way we choose our Government
28 Jan 2011 http://www.telluswhy.ie/
If the current crisis has taught us anything it is that government decisions have serious consequences. We must take our responsibility to choose that government just as seriously.
In order to build a country we and our children can be proud of and prosper in we need to radically up our game as an electorate.
It is time for all of us to say ‘no more’ to all the gimmicks and promises; the blame and the buzzwords. We have to start holding candidates for office to account for their records. We need to start treating them like the prospective employees that they are.
Only then do we have any hope of delivering the capable and talented leaders this country needs so badly.
Please Note: Tell Us Why is a not-for-profit, non-partisan initiative founded by Daniel Philbin Bowman, a final year politics student, and staffed by volunteers. The campaign has no political affiliations or agenda other than to improve the quality of candidate information available to the electorate at this critical moment in our nation’s history.
Brightwater Recruitment, assisted in the development of candidate entry form. They have written the following message for publication:
“We firmly believe that Ireland Inc has the potential to recover – we have one of the youngest and well-educated populations in the world as a workforce, we serve as a European hub for many of the world’s leading organisations and the infrastructure is already in place. As a nation that needs to retake its place in the world’s economy, we need strong, skilled people at the helm who can instantly add value and credibility to Ireland Inc.
“As with any job application, it’s important that visibility is paramount and to that end we would encourage all election candidates to be clear and honest on their own experience to date, their plans going forward and both their ability and commitment to represent their constituency. As a leader in Ireland’s business community, Brightwater are delighted to be part of the www.telluswhy.ie initiative and look forward to the future where Ireland once again is a key player on the world economic stage.”
