Let’s try a new mix at the top

IF ENDA Kenny is serious about quotas in public life, let me make the following suggestions to him. Forget about his Fr Tedstyle ‘lovely girls’ quota and instead install people in the Dail who can get this country going again.

A quota of electricians would ‘light up’ the backbenches, a quota of fitters would keep the wheels of industry turning if the Government ever gets them moving again and a quota of gardeners would know how to nurture the ‘green shoots’ of recovery we hear so much about.

We see only too well what a mess a parliament top-heavy with barristers, teachers, accountants (Bertie), farmers and publicans has made of our country.
