Ming deserves an apology from Sean Barrett
The Ceann Comhairle's hysterical outrage can only be described as 'bullshit', writes Gene Kerrigan
IT'S extremely rare for anyone to question the Ceann Comhairle's behaviour -- presiding over the Dail, he seems practicably invulnerable to complaint, no matter what he does or says. Which makes it all the more important that his behaviour be freely examined.
On Thursday, December 19, Ceann Comhairle Sean Barrett chastised a member of the Dail, unfairly and inaccurately accusing that member of criminal behaviour. He said things that were not true.
Worse, he treated without respect the legitimate concerns of the people of a part of Roscommon, as expressed by their elected member in a wholly legitimate way.
