The Dail should be manic today, but it’s really depressing.
As Willie ODea said on the ***Seven O’Clock Show on TV3 yesterday…. it’s “a holiday”
*** I stumbled across it while flicking, I swear!
Yawn… Are we not all clear yet that not every TD needs to be present in the Dáil the whole time for a debate? If the relevant spokespeople from the parties are there you don’t need a whole bunch of seat-fillers who could be doing actual work instead.
