Just listening to any Dáil meeting, it is very noticable the difference between where all the extraneous noise comes from.

Any time Gilmore or Kenny is speaking, or any Opposition politician, the Dáil is basically silent but when a Green or FF politician speaks, all that's heard is the Opposition politicians shouting over the speaker.

How the hell can you tell how much shyte a Green or FF'er is talking when you can't hear them? (Yah, yah, when they open their mouths.)

Watched a little bit earlier when Joan Burton was speaking and such was the volume of heckling coming from Fat Face Fahey and not a clue Dooley the CC was constantly threathening to kick them out but it was working as Burton was having continually to repeat/start again herself and the clock was running down.

Fahey and Dooley were constantly interrupting Noonan earlier. Both were warned as a result of their behaviour.

All sides interrupt whoever is speaking.

So the CC kicks out Shatter who made a reasonable point - but tolerates the kindergarten heckling from the halfwits on the government backbenches.

Toerag democracy. :mad:

Janey, myk, why ask the question when you clearly know the answer already???

indeed.

SuperKirk also defends Coughlan from having to answer questions that she is probably incapable of understanding. Questions like; What time is it, is the Earth flat etc etc

Both the Seanad and Dail are a disgrace, there needs to be complete reform
The country and the whole world is talking about our bailout. Our own parliament cannot discuss the crisis, just read a statement. Crazy stuff.

In fairness, the Dáil had something important to discuss on today of all days - the 20 year strategy for the Irish language.

Are those important-looking people sitting in the Distinguished Visitors Gallery members of the IMF delegation, or am I hallucinating?

Whenever I see clips of the dail in session the cc does seem very bias towards the government. Whenever the opposition get even a little aggressive i.e calling ff traitors they are told to shut it. A kangaroo parliament.

If you compare Westminister to the Dail you see how utterly stupid our politicians are. There are a few exceptions - Rabbitte, SF dude (O'C...cant spell), Gilmore (I dont support either of these parties).

The Seanad has much better speakers and I would say people of a higher intellect. Pity its just a talking shop.

But most of the time there is nobody in the dail. Why dont they have to attend debates.

The foreign media must be looking at our debates and saying where the hell are these guys? Is this place a Western parlimentary democracy or a bannana republic..

I agree about the Bull, he was far more flexible.Kirk is just a Dermot Ahern protege, of the cute FF species.

The Dáil is irrelevant, yes, irrelevant and nothing else. All it is a pantomime where prepared boring pointless scripts are read out with accompanying antics of a punch and judy show. What is the point of it ? It has not done its job. It has not served its purpose. It has no power when the IMF/ECB/EUC are going have the power of veto on all decisions made in this country from now on.

What can be done to resolve this vacuum of leadership ?

For starters, suspend the whole lot of them. Give them all P45s, no severance pay, no pensions and no golden handshakes. They have all failed to do their job. Sack them all, every last one of them. Lock up Leinster House, until some rational realistic people come forward who are going to put the nation first over their own ego driven self interests.

Dev. did that 60 years ago, There has to be something wrong with our system. The whole world talks about us and we have to ignore our problem.
