    An incalculable blow to our parliamentary system.

    Threatened since last week
    It is understood that Mr Wallace contacted Ceann Comhairle Seán Barrett this week about being readmitted.

    Technical group member Finian McGrath, a Dublin North Central TD, said he would have to consider his position in the group if Mr Wallace rejoined.

    He was angered by comments Mr Wallace made in a weekend radio interview about speaking to a hitman as he sought to recover a debt. He earlier this week said he was concerned Mr Wallace’s conduct had damaged the integrity of the “Independent brand”.

    Handbags in the Technical group according to the Indo which of course is always an impeccable source when it comes to stories concerning independent Dail deputies.
    “Things got to a new level of nastiness. There was almost fisticuffs, it was that bad,” said a source at the meeting.

    The Technical Group walked out of the Daíl today, due to the Chair issuing a decree that new TDs must be accepted in the group, with less speaking time per head.T

    The Dail is suspended until tomorrow.

    Barrett has to be the worst Ceann Comhairle in the history of the state at this stage.
    Do the right thing.

    This is a joke.

    At this stage Leinster House is the problem. Move the whole shebang to College Green where they can't hide behind fences.

    The Ceann Comhairle should be elected similarly to how the President is. He is meant to uphold the constitution like the President and should not be appointed, but elected, so at least we have a say in how the Dáil is run and who it is run for.
