Dream of electing experts to Dail

That David McWilliams has opted out of running for the upcoming election is a great shame for this country.

We are in dire need of a mechanism through which leading experts in areas such as agriculture, health, science, education and economics can contribute to political debate, if not have a hand in the creation of policy in their specialised area. Such a development would transform Irish politics, bringing about the credibility and expertise we, the electorate, dream of in Leinster House.
