That Seanad election March 18, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
I’m out of the state so only getting spotty access to Irish news, the controversy over the Adams White House dinner snub is intriguing (as well as demonstrating a remarkable lack of nous on the part of US authorities). Intriguing in that the semi-excuse of a mistyping of something suggests a flag went up that was out of date or what have you – albeit a quarter of a century or so out of date. There’s efficiency for you.
Meanwhile much closer to home can’t disagree with Noel Whelans very critical analysis of the Seanad election process. As a sort of parting non gift from the last government it’s oddly appropriate – for all the rhetoric and the referendum nothing happened. We are still electing the Seanad as we always have (and on balance I am still in favour of retention but not in this form). Abysmal.
