Another excuse for Politicans to Doss

Considering the name of this blog this seems kinda strange that i am posting this post but anyway . The green party want to introduce mobile voting for the dial so that the politians can vote from home. I mean come on the dail chamber is too empty at normal times not to have politicans wanting to vote from the golf course. This whole thing of constituticy work. I'd love to know what it is . So here is what they say . Firstly a TD's job is i think technically to sit in the dail the rest is the local councils job but that is rarly the case. so looking at there other interests to see what could keep them from sitting in the dail. First Bertie is quiet funny as he is the member of 3 golf clubs yets adds. "did not receive any material benefit from these as I do not play golf." He likes his hobb knobing or else can't say no and has no spine like suggested in my last post or he is a nice guy. so tds with jobs

So that seems to be it some teachers are declared to be on leave so i left them out i have no idea if the included ones are on leave. So is this the reason for mobile voting. So they can continue theses jobs. In the above list jackie is the only one without a job or directorship declared.

A lot had directorships of charitable organisations which is fair enough.

There is about 50 in the list.

see puting to gether this list is real dossing.
