A problem (one of many) in this country is that decision-making is so centralised, local councils have pretty much no role. We therefore have local politicians who can do fuck all, and TDs who are glorified councillors.

If we had a system where councillors dealt with the roads etc and TDs dealt with state policy, would Lowry or the Healy-Raes be legislators?

With the huge differences now in boundaries due to the City bounds being moved out, it will be a very interesting local election this year in the City.

We have politicians who should be able to make decisions... i’m all for spreading power downwards ... but there should be very heavy penalties for corruption (enforced)

Would it be a good idea that only people educated to degree level (proper degree and not arts, teaching, music or nursing) can run for election?
