Knaves are out
• What unfortunate timing for a confused and battered working/middle class to be saddled with a Dail opposition comprised almost entirely of knaves and fools.
For as long as it has existed, most of those who took their seats in Dail Eireann did so in a dignified manner and fairly represented those who elected them.
The recent play-acting by a group of dishevelled-looking audience-seekers from the opposition benches only serves to make us all look as thick and self-serving as them.
Encouraging people to break the law in the interest of self-promotion is no substitute for intelligent, reasoned debate. The fools can be excused their stupidity, but the knaves have no such excuse.
