Today in History - De Valera elected

We need more men like Dev I found it a curious coincidence that while the Irish government tries to get us all excited over today's 'Europe Day' (puke), it was on this day back in 1932 that Eamon de Valera and Fianna Fáil got elected to Dáil Eireann for the first time in their history.

How times have changed for the party since then, eh?

In my opinion de Valera was the greatest Taoiseach this country has ever seen and his devotion to the Irish nation was admirable.

I can't help but think though that if he were around today he would be utterly disgusted at the attitude of today's Taoiseach Bertie Ahern who seems to have open contempt for Irish sovereignty and a stubborn willingness to make us a part of a European superstate - whether we like it or not!

Dev wouldn't have put up with this BS from Brussels in the way Ahern has. That ladies and gentlemen is the difference between the two men.

De Valera was a patriot. Ahern is a puppet.
