Brid Smith TD speaking in the Dáil on the appointment of judges

There’s a Bill before the Dáil about changing the way judges are appointed, which is by each other, and by the establishment political parties (though they like to pretend otherwise). We want a role for lay people in the process of appointing judges. Why? Because keeping it ‘in house’ as it now is, means more of the same – the ‘Great and Good’, the same priveleged, well-connected, elite scratching each others backs and keeping their disgusting self-serving system free from public scrutiny or influence. Brid spoke on this in the Dáil the other day.
