and the skank class would be listened to.....
And that is why it ain't going to happen here anytime soon. The established parties know full well the disaffected by and large whinge and moan but don't vote and WTF would they want to alter that?

The reform of any of the above is not on any parties agenda.
it is on Gemma O'Doherty's Anti-Corruption Party manifesto and the reason she is attacked ,vilified and demonised by the corrupt Media and their useful idiot followers at the behest of the corrupt Govt.
Mentioning the insane things she has said is niether attacking nor vilifying her.

Try some research on her claims ,before making cheap shots of defamation. She is Irelands premier Investigative Journalist. Of course her statements are beyond the cognitive ability of the terminally stupid.

Interesting attitude - so do you think there are people out there who shouldn't be listened to?
Im in favour of compulsory voting only if the franchise itself is weighted for certain categories based on education age and state employment.

Eg all voters employed by the state would be in a specific voting tier subject to certain handicaps.

And instead of secret ballots we could assemble at the Field of Mars Curragh and vote in tribes.

No , they're all useless. Just vote for whoever proposes to steal the least amount of tax from you. Less money they have the less damage they can do.

I'd move the Dail and Civil Servants out of dublin to free up space so productive members of society.
