Legislative inertia

 

Sir, – The main problem bedevilling politics is, as ever, inertia. What do I mean? Someone says, “We really should amend the Act governing blasphemy”, to which everyone replies “Yeah, we really should.” So? So nothing. Do any of these TDs actually set about framing a proposed amendment? – Yours, etc,
