Last week we talked alot about the referenda. We discussed the functions of the Seanad. Then we debated if we should abolish the Seanad or not.
There are 2 houses of parliament in Ireland.This referendum is about whether to abolish the seanad or not.Some people think we should get rid of it and others want to keep it.If we get rid of it we will save £20 million a year but we will have to pay all the senators quarter a million if we abolish it.If we get rid of the seanad some people think the dail will have too much power.The people who say we should keep it also say we should reform it.I think we should get rid of it.
