Some TDs are setting up a committee to see if it is worthwhile having a dedicated TV Channel for the Oireachtas.
I personally am in two minds about this. It is an extraordinary waste of tax payers money that could be better spent in a hundred different places but, there is always a but. If the politicians were being watched they might actually turn up and try to do something useful.
Let's think about this rationally, TDs in Ireland hardly spend any time actually debating issues, and in the last year or so no major laws have been passed so is there any point to showing this on a TV channel? The answer is no!
Start making things better and fighting for your constituents and then we might want to watch.
