Charlie McConalogue TDDonegal Fianna Fáil TD Charlie McConalogue has welcomed the outcome of the two referendums held at the weekend on the Seanad and the Court of Appeal, describing the Seanad referendum result as “a clear message for real political reform.”Deputy McConalogue commented: “The message from voters in Donegal was loud and clear at the weekend – they want real change in the political system and an end to cynical politics. The No vote on the abolition of the Seanad is a complete rejection of the Fine Gael, Labour, Sinn Féin platform. What we saw was a Government trying to increase their power, supported by a populist Sinn Féin.“I welcome the public’s support for the establishment of a Court of Appeal and believe the strong Yes vote there dispels any notion from Fine Gael and Sinn Féin that voters were confused. “During the campaign Fine Gael arrogantly stated there would be no reform of the Seanad if the referendum was defeated. People in Donegal did not vote for more of the same, they want real change. The Taoiseach has a duty now to engage with other parties and civil society in a serious discussion about real reform of our parliament and government.“We have tabled a list of proposed reforms including a significant move of power from Ministers to the Oireachtas. These proposals, and those of others including Senators Quinn and Zappone, should now be discussed. We need an end to the arrogant and dictatorial approach from this Government.” REFERENDUM: WE NEED REAL REFORM NOW, SAYS McCONALOGUE was last modified: October 7th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Charlie McConalogue TDreferendumreformSeanad

Jared Goff’s longtime football friends still aren’t certain how to process this moment.On one hand, Goff’s presence in Super Bowl LIII as the Rams quarterback comes as no surprise given the Novato native’s talent, propensity for hard work and a demeanor befitting the Joe Montana No. 16 he’s worn since his youth.Then again, this is the Super Bowl. Against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, no less. The …

A private pathological laboratory in eastern Assam’s Golaghat town had given a pregnancy report to a man who had gone for urine test.Doctors had advised Jogeswar Bora, a barely literate 42-year-old farmer on the outskirts of the town, to get his urine tested for a certain health complication. He did the test under the Chief Minister’s Free Diagnostic Services that was launched in 16 of Assam’s 33 districts in May 2017.Under the scheme, for people on either side of the poverty line, the State government paid private hospitals or laboratories for conducting medical tests such as CT scan, X-ray, blood and urine tests in government-run facilities.The Golaghat lab handed Mr. Bora the report after getting his urine tested at the civil hospital. “I had no idea what the report contained until a drug store owner I showed it to, said I had no chance of bearing a child,” Mr. Bora said.He then went to a private medical practitioner who told him that it was a negative report of pregnancy, and “something somewhere must have gone wrong”.The laboratory said Mr. Bora’s case could have been caused by a mix-up.
