SIR – The so-called Reform

Alliance is now being sold to

the public as a new concept

and given all the glare of the

Dublin media.

This party is again proposing

the old format of centralised

politics and this is why

the Dublin media is highlighting

its development; it

is initiated in and concentrated

on Dublin. If this concept

was adopted down the

country it wouldn’t merit a

spec on the news, but when it

will be run from Dublin, then

all is okay.

I appeal to all the people

in the regions to reject this

old idea and seek the real

change of provincial assemblies,

whereby the provinces

would have autonomy over

their respective affairs and

remove the centralised party

politics from Ireland. The

new change must be to have

an inclusive Ireland where

equality is practised and

the vehicle for this concept

is having TV stations in the

provinces with all-Ireland


This would ensure equality

within Ireland and remove

the one-sided broadcasting

system, which we have at

present, being used to promote

Dublin. The regional


must become awake to

their own local interests and

unite within their respective

province for the collective

development of Ireland.


Liam Ó Conaire,


Co Limerick.
