David Norris attacks the efforts of Enda Kenny to get rid of the senate

category national | elections / politics | opinion/analysis author Sunday July 07, 2013 20:28author by fred Report this post to the editors

David Norris has recently been diagnosed with cancer which he speculated appears to be related to the initial incidence of viral hepatitis which he contracted from tainted drinking water while he was on unpaid Government business in Eastern Europe in 1994. There is much discussion about this online, but this personal situation may have added fire and urgency to his impassioned breathless speech in defence of the Seanad. Here it is. Share it widely.

The Fine Gael government is planning to get rid of the Senate in order "to save money" even though it only costs a few million. Any money saved would be given to the wealthy bankers, bondholders and speculators.

Ireland and its people owns its Natural Resources that's what we grew up believing that every Country in the world owns its Natural Resources, So how come Ireland O'l Government gave them away to the Banks TOO...
