-----who has looked at the amendments that have been tabled during the debate in this House to show how any of those amendments were vexatious or frivolous. We sought to improve the Bill. We are totally opposed to the Bill. We do not believe it has any purpose in this country and we believe that our Constitution already deals with the appointment of judges. I would like to see a new system but I do not believe this Bill is it. Again I put on the record of the House, let someone show me where I have been vexatious or frivolous in what I have done. Sure, there are people in Leinster House who are deriving some hilarity from this, and there are others in Leinster House who are completely annoyed with the time it has taken-----
