The Comptroller and Auditor General has once again revealed a massive waste of taxpayer’s money caused by the incompetence of various government agencies. There are only two certainties about this annual farce – the wastage will continue and nothing will be done.
Here’s how three of our most senior, so called leaders, responded to the latest report.
The Taoiseach, Brian Cowen refused to make any comment whatsoever.
The Minister for Finance, Brian Lenihan, also refused to make any comment and instead referred the matter to the useless Dail Public Accounts Committee.
The Minister for Justice, Dermot Ahern said he ‘didn’t ever involve himself in procurement issues.’ He then bizarrely went on to congratulate the officials that were criticised by the C & AG.
