    Default Taoiseach favours Oireachtas TV channel

    Taoiseach Bertie Ahern has said that RTÉ should be able to transmit a dedicated Dáil channel on television. Mr Ahern said that within the public service remit he said he though that RTÉ should be able to carry such a channel.

    Well any thoughts?
    I'm assuming it would be like the BBC Parliament channel

    I don't think it really affects Bertie seeing as he's never feckin there
    Actual morality is doing what is right regardless of what you're told. Religious morality is doing what you're told, regardless of if it's right.

    Enda Kenny suggested this months ago, and repeated his suggestion a few weeks ago

    I think it'd be great, but only if it was done properly, with interesting commentators, interviewers etc on top of live coverage.

    its available live on line very easily. creating a tv channel is not such a huge step.

    It's already available online. I can't see why not.

    As it happens, Bertie's comments were made in response to Enda suggesting such a service during this morning's Dáil session.

    i agree with stretcheil, it would be a good idea but it was to be jazzed up a bit, make it easy to watch, not just long speeches

    Did you ever watch the Daily Politic on BBC in the morning?
    Its presented by Andrew Neil (I think) and has Portillio, and that Black New Labour lady who had to resign for sending her sprog to private tutition.

    Anyhow, thats an exercise is how not to jazz things up.
    Its tries to be full of eye catching analogies and metaphors, stunts and wheezes, etc.
    Its just irritating after a while.

    Have only seen it once or twice meri and to be honest i was more then likely just flicking through the channels!!!

    Im not sure how they would do it but they certainly could not show it on its current format, unless they make it more like american football show 30 seconds of action and then break to commercials!!!
