Opposition must end charade of parliament without power

WITH Greece, Ireland has reason for complacency about the future of its politics. This is one of the findings of this week's Eurobarometer Survey into voting intentions in the European Parliament elections on June 5. Elsewhere the picture is darker. However much we may feel our democracy has been bruised and damaged by the people responsible for it, the professional practitioners, comparatively speaking it is in good shape.

Greece has the edge on us, by one percentage point. There, 62pc of its population is 'interested' in the forthcoming European elections as against 61 per cent in Ireland.
