5.6 POLITICAL SCIENCE
In the midst of the extraordinary controversy surrounding Mr Justice Séamus Woulfe, the Supreme Court is currently the equivalent of a plane flying with one failed engine. It is important, in these remarkable circumstances, to bear in mind a fundamental principle of the Irish constitution set out in Article 6: "All powers of government, legislative, executive and judicial, derive, under God, from the people". The people are the ultimate arbiters of power, even over the judiciary.
