I don't normally write about politics. That doesn't mean that I don't have strong feelings and opinions about them.

However when a government is trying to weaken the democracy of a country and that country happens to be my own I'm afraid I cannot be silent.

Fortunately there are others out there who are better at expressing their views on why the abolition of the Seanad is a bad idea..

Here's Senator David Norris speaking out against the Fine Gael government's plans to abolish the second house.

Watch it.

Update: the transcript of the speech is available here
