    Michael Martin claims 'Society ' let down the women and children. He conveniently ignores the fact that Fianna Fail and Fine Gael ran society for the whole timeline of the Mother and Baby homes.

      The past is a different country
      And yet it's not
      One article flagged that working class single mothers were generally supported by their families, rural land owning families were more inclined to push the single mothers to the homes.
      Economics played a big role in the scandal, it was an impoverished state with a rigid social structure and anything outside of that was disruptive.
      Economics and land still heavily influence politics today.
      One commentator on the Brendan O'Connor show flagged how Ireland is a still a nation of charity instead of a nation of rights.

      The report still has a lot of unexplained issues, notably the mismatch in deaths declared.

        This report mightn't be as bad as Mr MacAlese's whitewash on the Laundries, but it looks to be running it close. Tax the bastarding churches, all faiths, get the fuckers out of healthcare and schools. Though I suppose the next big "oh how can this have happened under our noses?" report in say 30 years on Direct Provision will be purely a State evil. Fuckin bastard McDowell and pals.

          Catherine Connolly skewering the whitewash of a report and the abysmal handling by the triumvirate of shite. O'Gorman standing over this report and the way the survivors were treated is another deserved mail in the Greens' coffin.

            Mary Lou has been extremely low profile in the last few months. Maybe I'm missing stuff, but most of the criticism that's getting heard seems to be from Independents, and the likes of the Soc Dems and Boyd Barrett.
