Anyone actually think this is a good idea?
Recommendations: Reserving a “Seat at the Political Table”
1. Reserve a seat in the Seanad for Travellers (Taoiseach’s nominee).
2. Introduce a Traveller quota system at all levels of the Oireachtas, in local democracy, in other decision making fora and within the Civil and Public Service.

The quota system idea should go down like a lead balloon with kost people, I think.

Point 1 would find some support. There is a precedent — Irish Protestants were given special representation in the original, Irish Free State senate before it was abolished. But they were a much larger minority than Travellers!

Quotas are designed to have less brain power around the table.

Might as well have a quota for peeps born on a thursday.
