    Alan Kelly. The last minister that did any service to the public by freezing rents in 2015.
    Have a think about that.

    Why does Ivana Baçik flip-flop unchallenged between Independent TCD senator and Labour Senator? She wasn’t elected to the Seanad under a Labour manifesto, but through the rotten borough system of the University Panel 3 seats for TCD system?

    So which is it, Ivana, are you representing Labour or TCD voters? it cannot be both.

      Ivana runs as a Labour candidate for the TCD panel. The University panels are the only one with a constituency of people as such so its totally legitimate to claim to represent them; whereas senators for the vocational panels do not represent a constituency so their claims are disingenuous. Doesn’t stop the recently elected FGer to me claiming to be a senator for North Kildare; Catherine Ardagh does it too and so on.

      Trinity has elected senators (and TDs when they had a Dail constituency pre-1937) from political parties frequently enough; they just used to be Unionist generally!

    I see the Labour dregs were out protesting the shambles they caused. Does this new policy document have a handy list of all the foodbanks they opened?

    I love the way Alan Kelly always looks like a bold child. I’m probably in the minority but I have to admit that I like him.
