End Tribal Politics (Dáil Reform)

  • Fianna Fail and Fine Gael are mirror images based on families not political argument.
  • TDs behave like County Councillors. Legislation takes a back seat.
  • Dail and Seanad reform is essential.

Solution

  • Change the multi-seat PR system which forces TDs to prioritise local issues.
  • Introduce single seat constituencies or the list system to give TDs the freedom to legislate not to look over their shoulders and compete with constituency colleagues.
  • Give Dail Committees power to compel witnesses.
  • Abolish Seanad unless it is reformed within 12 months.
