It would seem from the 9 o'clock news last night (Sun) that the government aren't happy with the people for voting the way they did and won't hold any more referenda.
David Davin-Power quoted a text from "senior government minister" telling him not to hold his breath for the Seanad Reform referendum.
I found it very disturbing - not surprising - that RTE didn't make more of an issue of the government basically telling us - the voters and tax payers - that they won't be seeking our opinion any more because they don't like what we're telling them.
I got a sense from the advertising for the recent referendum that we were supposed to feel empowered and somewhat grateful to our leaders to be allowed have the "final" say in our constitution, but that's ridiculous when you consider who gets to decide when and on what topic we ever have referenda.
Anyway - FG/Lab seem keen to shut off access to any more pesky votes because they don't like our tone - but Seanad Reform referenda an election promise, so how are they going to swing that one?
