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.


  • Change the multi-seat PR system which forces TDs to prioritise local issues.

  • Give Dail Committees power to compel witnesses.
  • Abolish Seanad unless it is reformed within 12 months.
