It’s always refreshing to witness a real democracy at work.
The British Parliament defeated the Government on the question of military action against Syria.
It’s refreshing to see articulate, intelligent politicians debate the matter in front of a packed house without the crutch of zombie statements prepared by anonymous civil servants.
If the same situation existed in our gombeen parliament the decision would be made by three or four individuals behind closed doors covered by a blanket of absolute secrecy.
The Dail, Opposition and the people would then be informed of what action was going to be taken in their name.
And fuck anyone who had a problem with it.
