SEANAD ABOLITION NO: Don't fall for the abolition 'stunt'
The arguments for abolishing the Seanad don't stand up to a moment's scrutiny, says Michael McDowell
Make absolutely no mistake; if you mark the "Ta" box on the ballot paper on October 4 in the Government's abolition power-grab, you are voting for all of the following.
* To remove from our Constitution all parliamentary checks and balances.
* To remove from our President the power to refer legislation to the vote of the people under Article 27.
