Leaders laughing at democracy

While this country is going through previously unseen economic woes, the Government has always stated that it has a mandate to govern from the people. And until now, this was true.
However, with the Government's majority now standing at three, and unfilled Dail seats at four, the mandate is no longer there until the people are allowed vote in the long awaited and overdue by-elections.
Democracy is being laughed at by our leaders.
