On Wednesday, Sinn Féin Senator Lynn Boylan with introduce a Bill that if enacted would allow for the coroner to use the same process used for selecting a criminal jury for the Stardust Inquest, using the electoral register and allowing for legal teams to dismiss jurors without any given reason during selection.
This is something both the Families and the Coroner have called for. Yet its success is very much in doubt. Lynn outlines the issues in the current Inquest system, the reasons why it is unacceptable to the Families and how the government could implement this quickly.
The full 25 minute podcast, including our conversation on the Climate Act, Carbon Budgets, Retrofitting and the “last gasp” of the Red Scare Sinn Féin media coverage is available on patreon.com/tortoiseshack
