Just a short message to those considering to abolish the Seanad.


If the Seanad is abolished, it will be gone forever. My greatest fear is people are looking at the short term saving of a few million a year as justification for closing down one of the houses of parliament.
About say 8 years ago, the calls for abolishing the Seanad were silent. Why? Because we were in a good economic place. And we will again. Taking a short term measure to make small savings today could well have huge ramifications in the long term.
Who knows what the future will bring. We may never need a use for the Seanad in being a check on government, but I like to know that it is there, just in case.

This is about making the best possible law, Oversight and the accountability of government.

Vote Yes, and it will be gone.

Forever.

Not till the next election so we'll have plenty of time to say our goodbyes.
