An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business
Jerry Buttimer (Fine Gael)
Senator Bacik is correct in calling out what happened in the UK in terms of the remarks by the two contenders for the Tory leadership and their lack of understanding and appreciation. Senator Higgins and I were in Luxembourg last week at the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, OSCE, Parliamentary Assembly. It is worrying that many British parliamentarians do not seem to understand what is going on. Last week, I met people such as Lord Bowness and Lord Dobbs - good friends of the Leas-Chathaoirleach.
