We can manage with fewer TDs
Published 26/02/2010 | 08:28
OUR parliament needs total reform. We have 166 TDs representing about 4.2 million people -- that is one TD for every 25,000 citizens.
The UK has 646 MPs for a population of about 60 million people; that is one MP for every 95,000 people
The taxpayer incurs huge expense in a country with a small population.
