On July 24th, 2009, Enda Kenny said at the MacGill summer school: “I see a new role for the Seanad entirely. The system of voting has got to be changed. Every graduate should be entitled to vote for the Seanad. I see real opportunities for connection with Europe. It should be the forum where MEPs can address the Seanad. It should be able to examine European legislation in a real scrutiny way. It should be a forum where delegations can come and make their case on national issues and the whole lot of it should be on a parliamentary (television) channel.”

In October 17th, 2009, at what is called the Fine Gael presidential dinner, Enda Kenny has this to say: “I believe the Seanad should be abolished and the next Fine Gael government will put this to the people. I have come to the conclusion that a second house of the Oireachtas can no longer be justified”.

A second source said that Mr Faughnan again told a Party Manifesto Group meeting in February 2010 that abolishing the Seanad would be "popular with the voters".

1. There is no 'secret' Seanad report. FG adviser Sean Faughnan helped write it. Sean & I discussed (& disagreed) at length about it in 2009

93
2. Enda Kenny adopted the report. Regardless if you agree/disagree with the policy, it's the pejorative of a party leader to change his mind
94

96
3. The 'secret' report is the Fine Gael New Politics document 'published' in 2010 (not so secret then)
