Interesting piece from Maura McHugh who’s measured the speed and quality of the responses from the Dail’s parliamentarians, Awards to Labour and Fine Gael. The Greens asked her to ask someone else in the party (which she thought about and forgot to do) and Fianna Fail sent her a big fat Word file containing “no substantive opinion”. She doesn’t mention Sinn Fein. Looks like the Republic’s politicians still have some way to go before they officially get the Internet. Via Richard.
