"Super junior" ministers making a mockery of constitution

    The constitution clearly limits the amount of cabinet members to 15 but we now have the farcical situation, of THREE so called super junior ministers sitting at the cabinet table. It was forgivable back in 1994 and 1997, when there was only one and it's purpose was to give the small party in government with only one cabinet seat, an extra voice but it's clearly being abused now, you had the farcical situation in 2017 in which Leo Varadkar dropped Mary Mitchell O'Connor from cabinet but made her a super junior minister so it was as if nothing had changed for her.
