Political system needs overhaul

It is about time the political system was reformed. Every person I talk to agrees on these points: abolish the Seanad, it is only a talking shop for failed politicians.
Reduce the number of TDs from 166 to 100. By not holding the three by-elections, the Government has shown that it does not need so many.
Reduce the pay and expenses of politicians, which are way out of line with reality.
