Dail must be made more accountable

I AM writing concerning the dire financial straits in which the State and many of its citizens find themselves.
To my mind, the problems that have created this appalling situation are due to the political system with which we are encumbered at present.
It has been endlessly suggested in these pages that we need political and constitutional reform. My horror is that each step suggested will push us even deeper into this unwanted and, might I say, unwarranted, political and economic mire. The more that is done by the Government, the deeper the pit into which we are pulled.
