The Independent reported over the weekend that Enda would like to replace the Seanad with a committee appointed by his good self to scrutinise legislation.
A "mini-Seanad with outside experts" whose members would be appointed by An Taoiseach. Apparently Labour TD's are not as enthused at this suggestion.
This committee, as proposed, would be part of the Houses of the Oireachtas, but would have its own designated staff, separate to the rest of the committees.
Chuckle, welcome chaps to FG's New Politics. What ya all think?

The Old Woman started the first thread on this. If this too gets sent to the zoo perhaps a mod could merge? Or if the first thread is freed from the zoo, please merge this one with the first thread.
