Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has appointed outgoing government chief whip Seán Kyne to the Seanad for just a few weeks in order to bolster Fine Gael's efforts to win seats in the upper house.

Jobs for the boys It's good to have the Seanad, but the way it's used as a retirement home for the dregs of irish politics is not its intended use. Bit like this thug who was arrested on his way to carry out a crime in position of a gun... Elected last weekend by his party only to cork City council..you need Garda vetting for a house but not a council seat..jobs for the provos

Jobs for the boys.. Absolutely disgusting politicians in this country all for themselves grab what you can while you can.... More jobs for the boys ... disgraceful.... Of course he is ,gravy train Failure house ! This is why. We need to get rid of the Senate...retirement home for failed politicians...time to get real and stop this abuse of our money....

Not a serious Country, Not really. Leo Varadkar has no integrity whatsoever. This new senator will be in the job about 4 weeks before the Seanad term ends, he will collect €6'000, but.... ...he will NEVER HAVE TO GO TO WORK. This post should have been left vacant until the Seanad Elections next month.

Social Democrats cancel meeting with Fine Gael amid claims of 'game-playing'“A senior Fine Gael source said that the Social Democrats decision to cancel the meeting with Fine Gael was 'bizarre' and accused the party of 'bad manners'” oconnellhugh BS made up story alert! “Senior source....” “Bizarre...” Probably because socdems have a conscience or know they’ll be wiped out if they honey into government with that smug git. They just gained a lot of respect

Do we really need a Senate? Or a president for that matter? Does he still get a slice of the €2m that's up for grabs. Now there’s a shocker FineGael boys club alive and well. This is why you have fallen so far from your ivory towers. timeforchange I think this government needs to get rid of the Seanad

Very simple, a change is needed to a state where senators are directly elected by the general public at the same time as the G.E rather than being appointed We had our chance to get rid of the seanad, just purposely set up for this kind of scenario 😔🐂💩 What luck 🤣🤣🤣 Jobs for the boys 😉😡 Lol. Course he is

Fine Gael denies 'game playing' after Social Democrats cancel meetingFine Gael has rejected claims of “game playing” from the Social Democrats which cancelled a scheduled meeting between the parties today.

Corruption and nepotism in plain sight.Cesspool politics. The most “democratic” of institutions where a significant portion of the population can’t elect a member but have to pay for a member Some country Thats wrong FineGael 2 fingers to the public again, dont you understand at all why you lost so many seats

Nothing new there, Ray Butler was same when he lost seat. They lose seats for a reason, should not be allowed Of course he is. After all he's one of the good ol' boys with pig nose in trough of taxpayers money Why oh why didn't more people vote to get rid of that 'Friends of friends circus' a few years ago? Wasting money on wasters.

Staying on the gravy train stealing a wage Leo and Croney Gael everybit as bad as Fianna Fail! That practice should be abandoned they have made a mockery of our judical system as well with political appointments. They would be ashamed of themselves if they had a scrap of it. Could be short lived.

Varadkar wants to position Fine Gael to rescue us from anarchyJohn Downing: Varadkar wants to position Fine Gael to rescue us from anarchy Define!!! &€ anarchy as a status quo OR socialism for 1% excluding prolatariate. Beware of a politician that wants to do us a favour. ***The rest of us want to, and voted to, position FG to LEAVE! We’ve had enough of their self-serving nonsense!

Here we go....jobs for the boys!! Shameless Unreal that this is legal. How can this happen when one considers that the election has net been held Ah Ireland, you gotta love this pig sty of a country The gravy train rolls on

What to expect from a deadlocked Dáil's first day as Fianna Fáil, Sinn Féin and Fine Gael vie for powerSinn Féin's Mary Lou McDonald winning the most votes for Taoiseach is likely to be the outcome of a long first day of the 33rd Dáil. Groundhog Day. GE2020 part 2 Probably some cock and bull story from a presstitute corp attempting to discredit the massive mandate given to Sinn Féin.

Former Chief Whip Sean Kyne appointed to SeanadKyne lost his Dáil seat in Galway West in the general election. The seanad needs to be abolished or at least make it the General public who cast the vote for senators. Too many exiting one gravy train to enter another.
