It is disgraceful and shocking that a member of the Seanad would describe Judge Cooke's decision in the High Court as "APPALLING". Where is the separation of powers? The Energy Regulator is INDEPENDENT. The judiciary is INDEPENDENT. Mr. O'Sullivan is advancing the interests of a private company not the public interest. I recall quite clearly that Mr. Ned O'Sullivan was a director of Shannon & Foynes Port company when he voted, as a Kerry County Councillor, he voted to rezone the land for the proposed Shannon LNG project without declaring his interest as a director of a company that would benefit enormously from the rezoning. Illegal lobbying, interference or peddling in influence with the Regulator or Judiciary for the benefit of a company registered in the tax haven of the Cayman Islands should not be tolerated by the other members of the legislature. Or does anyone understand any of the basic checks and balances that exist in our system and which are there to prevent the democratic process from being undermined?
