The review into the Tammany Hall passport scheme is continuing – and continuing – and continuing.
The scheme is an expensive scam that allows politicians to do favours for favoured constituents.
In my regular contacts with the Passport Office I am constantly told that the review is ongoing but should be complete before the summer recess on 3rd July.
I rang again yesterday and was told that as the Dail was sitting an extra week the review would not be complete until sometime around that date.
Obviously the strategy here is to publish the review just before the politicians head off on their long summer holidays in the hope that all will be forgotten by the time they return.
It’s a sly but standard strategy designed to avoid accountability.
