Dail and Seanad not serving us well

AS a result of recent newspaper articles, I would like to clarify my views in relation to the professional backgrounds of our public representatives.
I fully accept that it is the democratic right of the people to elect whoever they want, including bankers, developers and people from all other professions.
However, for us to have a properly balanced representative democracy we need our TDs and senators to roughly reflect our society.
