Hello quotas. Goodbye democracy

So, where do you stand on quotas in our judiciary, our political system and in our media?

The last few weeks seem to have been consumed by a procession of women – and some men – clogging up our media by telling the world that ... women have no voice in Ireland.

It's laughable rubbish which has gained common currency and become accepted as fact because it is simply too much hassle to go against this emotive orthodoxy – one which says that anyone against quotas must also be against women.
