Leave local issues to councillors, not TDs

I have a vision. I have a vision where the people of Ireland will elect men and women to Dail Eireann who will serve all of the country and not just their own local areas and their own selfish interests.

We have created a political system where we depend far too much upon our TDs having a bit of 'pull' or the right 'contacts' to procure our various needs, such as a medical card, when, in reality, it is our rightful entitlement.

As a result, our TDs are more likely to be looking after their own local 'patch' rather than being concerned for the overall good of the country.
