PostSubject: Can you guess some basic facts about your local TDs? (National Politics)   Sun Apr 20, 2008 12:27 pm

Can you guess some very basic data about your constituency and your TDs off the top of your head? Size of constituency, electorate etc. You can check in the links provided later for accuracy.

There might be scope for keeping an eye on your TDs or giving biographies of them but try to open another thread/threads if you can.

It's also an exercise in using the TABLE function. The button for making tables looks like a calculator and is called Insert a table.

Clare TDs (4)
/Clare pop: 104,000 /electorate 70,500
Tony Killeen FF
Age 57/in Dáil since 1992 /Current Junior Minister for Environment (?)
Timmy Dooley FF
Age 40/elected first time in 2007
Joe Carey FGAge 35/elected first time 2007 / son of a former TD
Pat Breen FGAge 59/elected before but not the last time

I don't get it. What are we supposed to do here?

Are you proposing that I guess something ?

Well just their ages and the sizes of the Constituencies which you'd hardly know offhand. I'd like to put a basic set of data together about the TDs around the country. You'd surely know their names and parties wouldn't you? You can check the harder statistics on johnfas link later. It's half a quiz. I'll change the name of the thread when all the country is done. (it's also an exercise in doing a table)

So where do you live?

Anyone going to have a shot at the table above? It's more of an exercise in the table than anything else - someone else can clean up the data later.

It looks a bit hard, Auditor, and I am afraid of being horribly wrong in public. Perhaps that is the point Very Happy. Perhaps if we put a list of all the T.D.'s up first and then put non-defamatory material/our opinions of them beside? Or is this treading on Ibis's ground?
