    Default Breaking News - McDaid has walked - Resigned seat

    Jim McDaid has resigned his Dil seat - RT News


    Former Minister Jim McDaid has resigned his seat in the Dail.

    The Donegal North East TD has been in contact with the Clerk of the Dáil to submit his reignation, which has been accepted.

    Dr McDaid has been outside the Fianna Fáil parliamentary party since he opposed Government policy to the cervical cancer issue.

    Government sources say they were not relying on Dr McDaid's vote in the Dáil, and are confident of retaining a majority in the House.

    The resignation brings to four the number of vacancies in the Dáil

    Another By election to look forward to

    Nothing will motivate the lazy / apathetic / Americanised / west-British types to embrace their culture and the Irish language.

    Breaking on Newstalk now. Reportedly told a constituency meeting he wouldn't vote for the budget.

    May even be a positive for Fianna Fail as they surely would win a by-election in Donegal North East which would strengthen them

    His last political act was a good one. He has weakened the government. So good luck Jim and thanks for that.

    That can't just call one. They'd have to call four.

    FF has done the damage and protected their friends so the rats can now dessert the sinking ship. Makes me think I hope the sheeple do vote FF back into power they (FF) wouldn't want that.

    you must be joking !
    You'd think Kenny committed Treason and brought in IMF. Cowen had all in stitches in Galway at 3.30a.m.but he was "not impaired" -DD Power. FF=Publican páirtí an IMF.

    That's right.
    And anyway I wouldn't rule out Paidraig MacLochlainn (SF) to win a by-election. Though from what I've been hearing there will be no by-elections.
    In a general election, it strengthens even more (if needed) my prediction for 1-1-1 in Donegal NE
