Leo Varadkar wants us to have a mega day of voting, this May we are set to vote for a new bunch of MEPs across Europe. Varadkar sees this as an excellent opportunity to hold a mega day of voting with various referendums being held on the same day.

Varadkar says the government will hold a number of referendums on the same day as the local and European elections on 24 May.
The Taoiseach made the comments in a speech to his parliamentary colleagues in a Dublin hotel ahead of the return of the Dáil tomorrow.
In is address, Varadkar says that his party would be proposing the votes and “looking to win them”.
Varadkar says bumper day of elections and referendums will be among 'busiest days in Irish politics'


What else could we hold a referendum on?

Article 41.2 which protects a womans choice to stay at home and raise her children.
It was supposed to be held already but was postponed.

Removing it could mean the end of the Children's Allowance

+ any legal obligation on a Man to financially support his Wife

- who chooses to mind the Home.

2 1° In particular, the State recognises that by her life within the home, woman gives to the State a support without which the common good cannot be achieved.

2° The State shall, therefore, endeavour to ensure that mothers shall not be obliged by economic necessity to engage in labour to the neglect of their duties in the home.

Irish Statute Book

Therefore Stay at Home Mothers will have no Constitutional protection from having to seek work outside the Home

- 2Bad if you have a gaggle of kids to be fed and watered....:zlumi::ura::smoking:

Get a Job!:stick:

- a Real Job that is!:smiley_1140:

Women will be forced to work while the children are in the care of the state, doesn't sound good to me at all.
I'm sure some arrangement will be made so that foreign (Muslim) women will be not be compelled to work.

This is the classic ruse that the Irish fall for every single time. Everyone will be focused on dole scroungers and will completely miss the larger picture and ignore any negative consequences .
