Redundancy in Dáil Éireann

Dark thoughts are pervading my mind! An announcement was made regarding 3,000 voluntary redundancies in the HSE. Could we have a similar initiative in the Dáil? There are far too many TDs and senators, mostly all banjaxing our country.

Instead of running the country we have the useless FF ministers up in Donegal doing election canvassing. The country is fubar and yet these nincompoops can vote themselves longer holidays and hidden salary increases.

The Dáil is run on a whip system and any party hack who presents him/her/self as a candidate for government would be subject to this. Now the moral dilemma is that they must know full well that sleaze will be the order of the day and they will be obliged to vote for that. Green Gombeens also are aware of this.

We get roads to nowhere built, potholes filled in Kerry and a centre of excellence on a grid locked Berkley Road/NCR for some dubious and reasons beyond human understanding. Lies or more PC (thank you Arthur Morgan) FIBS were told to a foolish Finian MacGrath who believed that voting for issues against his better judgement would get him a spanking new, shiny, Cystic Fibrosis Unit but that turned out to be more of a depressing let down for the sufferers of that horrid ailment.

So, to lord over that mess do we really need 166 eejit parish pump morons and 60 senators? Do the ministers need Garda protection 24/7 when we can see the boyos from the EU who will be giving us some austerity, strutting around the city. They are not afraid.

If they did go for redundancy, how much will they award themselves as a reasonable severance?

Two weeks per year of service plus one extra week capped at €600 max. That's reasonable for everyone else under the stat redundancy scheme. Not another cent.

The IMF this week made all our TDs redundant, the only problem is they are still drawing salaries and behaving like they have something to do.

What this week proved is we don't need a Dail and can get by perfectly without it.

In fact had we no Dail for the last 10 years, we'd be better off. Because the Dail legitimises political fraudsters and con artists. Without the Dail, the corrupt would be powerless and unable to implement their policies of national economic treason and sabotage.

They spent most of the past 13 years covering some ass or other. If as much effort were put into good governance as was spent making excuses for gross ineptitude of delinquent FF TD's we would be fine.

That suggests high levels of greed and a gross sense of entitlement at the very least. You could look at the agendas of the various scoundrels and try to get some understanding of their mindset.

God be with Pee Flynn with his difficulties of running three houses. What is the saviour of the Health Service in it for? She is the only one who wants that job! Is she indeed? You can go down the list of 166 and it's clear that they are in it for anything other than the benefit of the populace.

Wouldn't it be interesting to get a hold of their appointments agendas. All that hard work canvassing in Donegal while the country is in tatters, financially and otherwise. Will we get that same commitment for the other three outstanding by elections?

Cut TD's number in half as in Hungary

In Hungary, one of the EU countries rescued by the IMF, a process has started to cut the number of parliamentary representatives by half. This was one of the consequences of the cuts and reforms negotiated with the IMF.

That would be great! Just think, if we had half of the wasters would we have only half of the mess? Just wondering... :rolleyes:
