Meaningless political words

An independent consultant’s report on the waste water treatment plant at Ringsend in Dublin has identified major flaws in establishing its capacity and how odours could be controlled. The findings have prompted the Minister for the Environment John Gormley to say “Someone must be held accountable.”

The report said that serious errors of judgement were made:

“Those errors of judgement have affected people’s quality of life in this area and I think people who have made errors should be held accountable.”

John Gormley (Six One News, 8th report).

Serious errors of judgement that cost taxpayer’s millions are par for the course in Ireland. John Gormley is just mouthing meaningless political words when he talks about accountability – nobody is ever held accountable.

Next scandal please.
