1.How did Pat Rabbitte keep a straight face?
2. This lady is said to have been a teacher or "educator"?
3, I think on balance Seanad Éireann should be reformed rather than abolished. However submissions such as this are a strong argument for abolition
However badly she articulated it, she does raise a good point as her concern is fraping for example, being used to bully teens.
Many suicides in teens are being linked to bullying. The internet allows the bully to bully on such a scale that it can go on 24 / 7, no matter where you are. It's likely that more and more teens won't be able to cope with such pressure.
So I for one would like to thank FHE for using her position as a senator to try to help bullying victims and attempt get some legislation put in place to maybe help victims and have consequences for those who bully.
