Seanad and Dail serve no purpose
Nobody seriously believes that our totally discredited politicians are going to vote themselves out of the state-sponsored convalescing home for failed or rejected politicians. that is the Seanad.
This nonsense is nothing more than another political stroke, by consensus of the main parties, to con the people into believing that they have the sincerity and honesty to tackle the criminal waste of maintaining a useless Seanad that in the past served no purpose whatsoever other than to endorse government policy.
The taxpayer paid dearly for senators travelling all over the world and, of course, the now highly suspect claims surrounding travelling expenses to Seanad Eireann. The Seanad serves no purpose now and unfortunately neither does the Dail. The whole world knows that Ireland is no longer a sovereign state and that the EU and the IMF are now firmly in control. Dail Eireann is now totally irrelevant.
