Electoral (Amendment) (Voting at 16) Bill 2016: Committee Stage
I welcome the Minister of State. I want to tell the young people in the Gallery that I am the only Independent Senator in the Seanad. Every other Independent Senator is part of a group. Within that group, there is a tendency to speak for, with, by and around the group. I am a completely Independent Senator and not, as somebody in Sinn Féin tried to point out, a person who cannot speak for herself. That was co-ordinated into speaking against Sinn Féin because that is the way we all work in here. It is not true.
