Dáil chamber

Jennifer Bray, in The Irish Times, reports:

A report into the Dáil voting controversy is to be published today following discussions by the clerk of the House with four Fianna Fáil TDs involved.

The Dáil’s Committee on Procedures will meet today at 9am and the report will be published soon after.

Mícheál Lehane, of RTÉ, reports:

It is understood that the report, which was prepared for the Ceann Comhairle on the Dáil voting controversy, will be unable to recommend disciplinary action because the matter is also under investigation by another Dáil committee, and any sanction could prejudice that work.

The Dáil will also be debating the report this afternoon [at 2.25pm], and TDs who are the subject of the report will have an opportunity to make a statement.

    Simple, What Legislation has been enacted since Electronic Voting was introduced
    has the Committee reviewed all the CCTV footage with voting presence of members
    voting that ensures that all Acts passed have achieved a vote by majority, and if they
    have not, they are in fact null and unconstitutional

    there giving you all the middle finger and the gob daw Irish paddy electorate just accept it and move on. Lol. politicians shafting the thick Irish paddy is actually easier then taking candy from a baby!

    The collective stupidity of the electorate and inability to do anything is one of the main reasons we never have much success as a collective country. lots of individual talented Irish who have made their mark on the world and country, but as a collective, the gob daws consistently lower our collective country IQ to brain dead levels

    Next scandal please, I want to see if ye can go even lower in that barrel of filth
