I’ve only ever met Deirdre de Burca once, and she came across as a nice, sincere woman, and I agree with a lot of her analysis of the party’s performance (not her criticism of Gormley though) but you can’t help wondering has she left it a bit late to be speaking out? After all, she rushed (literally) into the senate to vote through blasphemy. What was she thinking?
She says that the Green party is refusing to stand up to Fianna Fail. But why didn’t she personally stand up to them, and just refuse to vote for the bill, as she had promised to do?
What could they have done? Beat her up?
Correction: Deirdre De Burca has apparently also resigned from the senate, which is a noble gesture, it has to be said.
