Sons of Austerity

It’s time again here in and we’re being asked to on the European stability treaty. Our political parties are united in us to vote yes to this one as they to all the most recent referenda. we’re running up to this been catching up on my television and the sometimes excellent, sometimes ‘Sons of Anarchy’ having a box-set of the same as a gift

Watching the show I can’t but think that Ireland has a lot in with the fictional northern town of Charming where the is set.

In the show the residents of have been hosts to the a nasty and violent motorcycle who have been using the as their base of operations for A mutually beneficial arrangement has over the years with the turning a blind eye to the activities of the as long as the town itself peaceful. Over the years we had the same political system in Ireland and as long as we were wealthy we didn’t look to see our own motorcycle gangs, the political were up to.

In the TV show there are several where the gangs power and the residents pay dearly for it when spills out onto the streets of Here we have had a political that appears to have a private betting syndicate to the where they have their wagers. Unlike our banking system

is unfortunately real and we really are paying the

The similarities don’t end there In the TV show three of the gangs are at war each other and there is a made between two of them to the other. These two gangs, who formally ideologically incompatible, their arrangement with a ‘patch over’ where the of the two is seamlessly integrated into the gang.

Back in the real world the Minister for Tourism and Sport springs to for some reason. The show features a deeply unpopular by the name of ‘Tig’.

We have the for the Environment and Local Government.

One thing that was perhaps a bit to to happen in a fictional story the Sons Of Anarchy was a story where the residents of Charming have to fund the gangs … debts or they’d get all essential supplies such as cut off. Even in Hollywood kind of farcical plot just wouldn’t wash.

As the wound on it became clear not even the ‘Sons’ were of their own destiny. They in turn being run by a much organisation overseas which was influenced by by even shadier who were suggested rather directly referred to. We now have to do best for Europe.

And perhaps we do. For too we like the residents of Charming we let make our decisions for us. When erred or took more their share we shrugged and on as if this were normal.

This weeks referendum decide, not just for us, but for the rest of what happens next and how it

Sons of Anarchy is an old tale It’s Shakespearian with than a little taste of Like most Shakespearean it’s a tragedy waiting to There are numerous opportunities for the players to do the right thing and a series of unfortunate events and  they always fail to do so. The are then catastrophic and the tale a sort of moral warning.
