I was in Diswellstown last night at a public meeting focusing on our children's education. In these austere times, it is imperative that we do not start making deep irreversible cuts to the things that matter, namely, the kids and the handicapped. I made an empassioned and emploring speech to Minister Burton to avoid such action. Her rebuttal was measured and weighted but lacked conviction. When asked bluntly 'Will you be cutting more SNA budgets in the Dublin West district?', her reply was wishy washy. Minister Burton, we have given you an influencial platform to represent us, please don't forget that.
