Do you want tech and biotech jobs in Ireland? How do you seriously
sit down with a Minister of Science to discuss investment in Ireland
when he's off giving credence to lunatics?
As for the "giving every side a say," that's passive-aggressive
bullshit. If you did that at your job (and keep in mind, Minister of
Science is a job), you'd be fired. If you stopped a systems roll out
or development until every side had it's say you'd never set a
deadline, nevermind reach it. As an intelligent human being and
skilled individual you need to cull the vast range of good ideas -
nevermind the batshit insane ones.
You should expect the same from the people you've hired to run the country.
OTOH if you're a creationist come out and say it and quit hiding
behind the wussy "all sides should have their say" bullshit.
