    Not to mention a directly elected mayor of Dublin. Or holding votes on a Sunday so people could travel to a local polling station if they haven’t moved their vote, and so teachers wouldn’t be paid for a day of not working while schools were used as polling stations. Or, yes, having everyone have a vote for the Seanad, and no one having two votes for it.
    Democracy, schemocracy.

    the referendum was to keep or abolish the Seanad. it was not a referendum to reform the Seanad. if you voted to keep it in the vain hope it’s unelected members would reform themselves then you are an idiot.

    …I’d forgotten Dan was actually involved on the winning side of a political campaign once…albeit, as William points out, based on untruth.
