• Democracy is dying in Ireland before our very eyes. We have elected politicians who as soon as they get into office abdicate their responsibilities and decision-making to various 'expert groups' and committees. The amount of money that has been squandered and given to people who are unelected is staggering.
Dail Eireann has become nothing more than that old parlour game of musical chairs. There is no passion there anymore, only decay.
