inversions of sovereignty

Making The People Accountable To The Politicians

In Ireland this week there are newspaper advertisements advising the general public that any contact with any elected politician may amount to lobbying and that all lobbyists must register their interest. So if as happened last week, I visit a parliamentarian and tell him: "Abortion is murder," now I am required by law to contact a public servant and inform him of my actions.
I'm not going to do that.
The law is invidious and cannot stand.
