Should we be surprised by this?Dáil votes to give itself an extra day off · TheJournal.ie
Fine Gael abstained from the vote, yet claims it wants to debate the economy?
So you are saying that what the Dail do has no effect on the economy so it doesn't matter if they go to work or not.Yes, that's what the economy needs now: lots of debate.

I completely agree. Then why the hell are we paying them so much money that could be spent either on public services or on on paying off our debts? Leinster house is a vast money pit.
How many TDs attend cabinet meetings? I think that would be directly related to the number of Cabinet Ministers?If posters had read the report referred to, they would see that the government intends to hold a cabinet meeting on Tuesday.
I know many people seem to believe that if the Dail is not in session, politicians have nothing else to do, so they must have the day off.
I would expect people here who have any knowledge of the political system would know better.
