Cllr. Denise Mullen calls for the creation of a dedicated phone number for urgent passport requests

Aontú Deputy Leader and Local Councillor Denise Mullen has called for the creation of a dedicated phone number that elected representatives have as a point of urgent contact.

Cllr. Denise Mullen Said “The passport office has seen massive delays over the past few months. People have had holiday cancellations and travel disruptions because of these passport waiting times. Elected representatives need to be able to access a dedicated phone number as a point of urgent contact so that people can travel when necessary and aren’t held up in passport delays”

Cllr. Mullen concluded “Over the summer months the demand put on the passport office is only going to increase.  Elected representatives need to take quick and urgent action to make sure those who need to travel are able to”

CRÍOCH

The Irish political system is radically broken



In Ireland the vast majority of elected representatives put a finger in the air to check which way the political wind is blowing. They have one eye on their leaders – seeking brownie points – and another eye keeping their seat safe. If elected reps shut up and do as they’re told, they are promoted; if they stand up for what they believe in, they are demoted. No wonder we have the political class we have. No wonder a half a billion euro is being buried in a hole under the National Children’s Hospital and that Stormont is in stalemate.



Throughout Ireland, many people are now afraid to say what they feel, many are afraid to respectfully engage on a range of different topics. Many feel there is a new censorship and a new political correctness in Ireland, that opposition to the establishment is being deleted.



Respectful opposition is not the enemy. Respectful opposition is a critical element of a functional democracy. Aontú will have the backbone to stand up, without fear, for you.
