Last time the Seanad delayed a bill, the Beatles were top of the charts – Bruton

Fine Gael’s Director of Elections for the Seanad Abolition Referendum, Minister Richard Bruton TD, today (Sunday) enlisted the help of John and Paul from the Beatles to kick off the final week of Fine Gael’s campaign for a Yes vote to abolish the Seanad. The Beatles had their first number one hit in the US in 1964 - which is also the year the Seanad last delayed a piece of legislation.

Speaking at the launch, Fine Gael’s Director of Elections, Richard Bruton, TD, said that the people were being given a simple choice – to abolish the Seanad, or to keep it as it is.
