Leave a chair for the 'disappeared'

Sir -- It was a novel idea of Enda Kenny to decline to take his chair in the TV3 election debate and offer his empty chair instead as a symbol of the many Irish people who have left the Republic since the death of the Celtic Tiger.

Perhaps Gerry Adams might also decline to appear in his TV debate and leave his chair vacant to represent the 'Disappeared' -- murdered by the IRA with the approval of Sinn Fein.
