    Default High Court Challenge launched on State Campaign Funding

    Seeing as how my thread on this topic has mysteriously disappeared, it's time for an update on the High Court Challenge which is being heard this evening:

    Children's Referendum challenge to be heard today | Breaking News News - eircom.net


    on 30/10/2012 12:42:12
    A High Court challenge to the Children's Referendum is going ahead this afternoon.

    Mark McCrystal, an engineer from Kilbarrack, Dublin, claims the Government is distributing a booklet that is designed to influence the electorate in favour of a Yes vote in the November 10 referendum.

    Mark McCrystal says the Government is spending €1.1m of public money on what he claims is a one-sided information campaign.

    Most all if not all the pamphlets have already gone out. Too late I am afraid.

    I will answer your question with a question. I hate that BTW.

    What do you think adequate redress would be here?? What will make this situation right now??

    If the challenge is successful that will be up to the court to decide.

    It'll be up to the court to decide what you think?

    The point is that the referendum is in 2 weeks time. I don't see that changing.

    Do you really think they are going to publish another booklet??

    Might it not be better to discuss the question of possible redress after the decision is made?

    They already ruled.

    Court told referendum material is 'persuasive' towards 'yes' vote | BreakingNews.ie

    EDIT: They have heard the case. Waiting on the ruling now. Apologies
