    Default Security remove TD from Dáil

    Just when I thought Dáil debates couldn't get anymore rough n' tumble:

    When Mr Barrett told Mr MacLochlainn to sit down and he refused to do and the Ceann Comhairle shouted at him to “get out”.

    The TD again refused to leave and a vote was taken to remove him from the House. Afterwards the Donegal North East TD remained seated and the House was suspended for 15 minutes.

    When it returned Mr MacLochlainn again refused to leave and the House was suspended for a further 30 minutes. The Dáil voted to suspend Mr MacLochlainn from service for three working days.
    The Evening Echo goes further in saying how MacLochlainn was ejected by security:

    He finally left before Dáil security were forced to remove him.
    Anyone know of any other cases of a TD being forcibly removed from the Dáil?

    Shows a man with passion and commitment unlike the rest of them who are happy to be dummy's sitting on the benches getting their huge slaries and waiting for their pensions.
    Follow the money in this country and it ALWAYS goes back to state support, be it tax breaks, state contracts and the manipulation of markets for the gombeen class.

    What a populist gowl.

    Having seen MacLochlainn before in TV debates, can't say I'm surprised he ended up gettting suspended. Always chomping on the bit.

    Can we just not ask security to eject the rest of them and maybe the country would start working again?

    MacLochlainn,, Shows utter contempt for our national assembly, like Sinn fein , he shows respect for no one else only his own party.
    Donegal has highest unemployment in the country, yet this moron decides to have a sit in over Dail procedure, yea, this should bring plenty of jobs to Donegal.

    He'll be delighted anyway.

    Gets his name into the paper and that's all these lads care about. And that's one of the great problems with our system, success isn't working to solve a problem, it's getting your name in the paper for doing the complete opposite. I don't know how anyone can be bothered.
