Politicians have voted to begin their six week Dáil summer break immediately, and not return for an emergency debate on the Pandemic Unemployment Payment next week.

In a late night sitting, the Dáil was also adjourned twice after heated debate on plans to change party speaking time rules.

A Sinn Féin request for an emergency debate next week on the Pandemic Unemployment Payment was rejected last night with the support of Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael, the Green Party and six regional independent TDs.

Opposition parties sought a debate on the changes, saying they will silence smaller parties by reducing their speaking time.

However, Government rejected the claim, with Tánaiste Leo Varadkar saying he was "embarrassed" by the exchanges and accused smaller parties of bullying.

After losing a vote to allow a debate on the issue by 86 votes to 63, TDs from Solidarity-People Before Profit, the Social Democrats, Labour and some independents walked out in protest - resulting in the speaking time rule changes passing without a vote.

The Dáil is not scheduled to sit again until 15 September.

The economy is in tatters, we are in the middle of a health crises, unemployment is about to be at the highest level in history, the education system is crumbling around us, we are heading into a massive recession & the clowns running the country are off on holidays for 6 weeks.

And still Irish people sleep-walk their way through a global pandemic after waiting twenty or thirty weeks for these un-elected clowns to form a un-elected coalition with which they immediately use to give themselves a pay rise, vote against a living wage for the people, and take off on a fully-paid six week holiday.

In any other country - this would have the populace outside the parliament house looking for heads to roll.

In Ireland?

Paddy goes back to the pub for lunchtime pints and a bit of old chat about democracy being a gas lad.

There are days when I have zero sympathy for any of you - 'you' being the endless mouths whining about the state the country is in. You, who rail against everything but accept it all regardless. You, who are responsible for the future living standards of your children and grandchildren but do shag all to change things. You, for all your posts and pseudo-clever musings on how to make things better, do absolutely nothing to save Ireland from the garbage bucket.

Face it lads - ye're a useless shower of mouths.

For all the posts on this site, for all the rage and anger, for all the time spent, still Ireland is a fucking madhouse run by the inmates.

With any luck, they'll forget to come back.

Not to worry, we will continue to be ruled from Brussels.

Merkel/Macron have indebted us forever.....like a couple of drug dealers.

And now they are shovelling Fiat Money into ireland to empower all their evil minions to destroy the place. NGO's, Direct Provision, Welfare for k.nackers, Cultural attacks.

If a fiction writer produced this story only 50 years ago, people would scoff at how outrageous and unbelievable it all was.

I don't understand the outrage?? Why do people want them to stay? Personally, I wish they'd go on a very long break, preferably for a few months.
