Way must be found to put Norris back in race

I am very disturbed at being deprived of the opportunity to express my opinion about Senator David Norris.

Opinion polls continue to rate his level of support at about 40pc which, in a representative democracy, should yield about 80 Oireachtas signatures on his nomination paper. As a believer in democracy, I am unwilling to spoil my vote, yet if my elected representatives cannot figure out a way to put David Norris on the ballot paper, I feel I have no option but to do it for them myself.
