• A letter by Philip O'Neill discusses the need to get rid of the political dynasties that are embedded in Ireland's parliamentary pseudo-democracy. I would point out that family members may run for office to replace one another but they wouldn't be elected if Ireland's sheep-like voters hadn't voted for them with party enthusiasm.
Blame your voters for unthinking party loyalty. Ultimately, the voters decide who will govern them.
