It’s like that episode of Father Ted, where the farmer shouts at the priest: “Should we all be racists now?”
There’s an election coming. Ireland has multi-seat constituencies. Candidates who appeal to fewer than 15% of their constituents regularly get elected. To parliament.
It all sounds great in theory. And then they discover that racism is a dog whistle for around…I don’t know…maybe 15% of the population.
Do we really have to have elections? (Asking for a friend.)
