Kenny asks Shatter to meddle in family case - National News - Independent.ie
Here we go again. Another exclusive from the sindo. The dogs on the street know that politicians get tons of requests for all sorts of stuff that they never get to read. For this they have secretaries and PAs who do the "yes Minister" stuff.
Now if people were discouraged to be applying to their local TDs in matters that do not realate to the political issue articles like this would never be born. As Shatter is alleged to have said:
The day a politician dares to lose a vote by telling his constituents that he is not a local councillor, the passport office, a mediator in a planning application and certainly not a funeral director, we might get to seeing a bit of real commitment to the job of TD.I note she has instructed a solicitor who should be able to give comprehensive advice to her on the issues.
