Timewasting in the Dail

During the opening of the Dáil today, Arthur Morgan of Sinn Féin was asked to leave the house, refused and thereby caused the house to be suspended on several occasions. Following that, there was a lengthy to and fro on the order of business with a vote called on each part.

All these activities took time, and now at 15:45 we still haven't started the debate on NAMA. The order of business will be passed by the government and will state that the debate must wind up by 8pm. The very people who wasted the time at the start will be the ones complaining about the lack of debate time on NAMA. These sorts of shenanigans drive me and probably lots of the public nuts.
