For real change, cut TDs down to size

AS I survey the wreckage of my country, what concerns me most now is my duty in the forthcoming election. My problem is that I have no one to vote for.

No Irish TD deserves to be elected.

These 166 creatures in the Dail cost me about €200,000 each per year (a total of €133m per year). British MPs have a rigorous selection process, are talented (cabinet members all have top degrees from world-class universities) and regularly debate policies coherently on TV.
