"then take away a democratic institution that keeps an eye on the Dail" - Yes, they kept an eye on the Dail alright during the boom years, the Seanad are as much to blame for "not keeping an eye" on things while the country went down the gutter. Good riddance to the overpaid cronies in my opinion. Government needs to be reformed and I think this a good step at cutting out the dead wood! Put the 20million a year that it costs into our kids education!
