Subverting democracy

Anybody else disgusted at the news that Fianna Fáil are trying to lessen the accountability of the taoiseach to the Dáil by allowing him to refuse to answer unexpected questions. The taoiseach is in charge of the country, he should be expecting questions on all issues! The Dáil is the elected representative of the Irish people and those who make decisions affecting the Irish people must be accountable to its reprensatives. to do otherwise makes the people suspicious that its politicians don't want to them the truth behind what is really going on. In the cabinet, the buck stops with the taoiseach, so he should be ready to deal with any issue that may arise.
