    That's fast tracking for 1.00 in the morning PJ.

    Hats off.

    A white suit (tie optional) will be perfectly compliant with the new dress code

    I notice there is no reference to footwear either so sandals (white socks optional) could really finish off the look

    It's getting plain silly re dress code as their ego is getting in their way.It's childish as if they think they are of some importance.

    I would prefer plain casual dress.

    at least a code that makes sense.

    Wallace will be fully within code if he wears a bright pink suit and knee high Doc Marten's. Women can wear anything, except jeans.

    Ming could have his muppet t-shirt image transferred to the back of a suit jacket and comply perfectly.

    Make it business casual and leave it at that

    Dress codes show conformity though, seriously why should we all be a slave? In Iran people dont wear ties as its seen as a sign of Western imperialism. Lets create a rule, no tracksuits or shorts and all shirts have a collar (polos, shirts etc). To be honest judging a person on how they dress is just elitist.

    A lot of people can't afford a suit. Dotty to make them a requirement for public representatives in the Dail.

    A clear sign that they are paid too much.

    So is trying to force a person to conform to certain rules put in place by an elite, like a dress code. And you just never know what might happen. Wasn't there at some stage one of Berlosconi's protegees in parliament who started flashing her boobs around the place at every occasion?
    Now, wouldn't that liven up the place no end? Noonan topless...

    Let's slash the pay of politicians until they can only afford track suits. Absolutely guaranteed to improve the quality of our politicians.

    Everyone should dress like Ahern on the first day of the Dail to celebrate the new code

    Yeah cos ramping up their pay to ridiculous amounts for the last 20 years has clearly attracted a Dail of Einstein-level geniuses of godlike foresight and competence.

    Let's face it, I could pick 166 randomers out of the population to replace those monkeys and the collective IQ of Dail would soar. Far from being "representative" of the best aspects of Irishness our corrupt political system has resulted in the Dail being a pure representation of all the very worst and self-destructive aspects of Irish society.

    You love trying to defend the status quo Baron but it really is a waste of your time. The ancien regime has been exposed, the emperor has no clothes, and only the most drooling credulous peasants still actually believe any of those clowns in Kildare St have a damn clue about anything, are competent and qualified to lead the country forward, or have any interest other than lining their own pockets. Shower of criminal vermin and nothing else.

    It would also settle the dress code argument.
