Irish citizens cast their votes at a general election and TDs are elected to Dail Eireann to represent the interests of their electorate?
A Government is formed and legislation is enacted by majority vote.
Where is the evidence that democratic practices are observed between elections?
What legal and political obligations are demonstrated towards the electorate who voted the individual TDs into Dail Eireann ?
Where is the evidence that TDs represent and protect their constituents?
When austerity bites and oppressive, extortionate economic demands are imposed by corporate and political power brokers from Europe and the IMF ( referred to as the TROIKA) what are these elected representatives of the Irish citizen doing?
Why are the TDs invisible at meetings such as “Can’t Pay Wont Pay”.
Where are these representatives of the people when severely disabled and freezing voters demonstrate outside Dail Eireann, fighting against cuts and removal of personal care assistants?
Why are the representatives of Irish democracy deaf, dumb and blind inside and outside the Dail chamber?
Where is their dignity, their respect for the voters who entrusted these very highly paid TDs to protect the electorates democratic rights, their human rights and maintain the dignity and self-respect owed to and claimed by constitutional entitlement of every Irish man, woman and child?
