President McAleese, the Criminal Justice Bill and that missing forty minutes… July 27, 2009Posted by WorldbyStorm in Irish Politics.
President Mary McAleese has this morning signed the Defamation Bill 2006 and the Criminal Justice (Amendment) Bill 2009 into law.
Last night, the President met 19 of the 22 members of the Council of State for nearly three hours to discuss whether to refer two Bills to the Supreme Court. The meeting began shortly after 6pm and broke up shortly before 10pm.
Nearly three hours?
I’m not saying they can’t count at the Irish Times… ah, wait, perhaps I am…
