Luke Flanagan has missed 11 days in the dail.
OK that's not ideal.
The Independent pick this up and report it.
The headline and photo are all about Luke Flanagan and his absenteeism
but deeper in the story you find he is not the worst offender.
Flanagan has one of worst Dail attendance rates - Independent.ie
This follows on from the outright harassment on Independent TDs by the Gardai and Justice minister.Mr Flanagan missed 11 out of 35 Dail sitting days between January and the end of March, giving him an attendance record of 68pc.
He did not return calls seeking comment last night.
Other politicians with poor attendance rates included Fine Gael TD Marcella Corcoran-Kennedy, who missed 13 days, Sinn Fein TD Peader Toibin, who missed 11, and Fine Gael TD Aine Collins, who missed 10. None of these TDs could be reached for comment last night.
Which follows on from the attempt to beat them into suits and short back and sides.
Does the cosy cartel really fear people who remotely threaten the status quo so much?
Is the fact that Marcella Corcoran-Kennedy is missing more days a bigger story?
