    Name the beneficiaries of the Penalty Points Scandal and who relayed the requests for cancellation to Senior Garda Officers.
    This is a matter of the Public Purse being burgled on behalf of the Few at a cost to the Many.

    GSOC muzzled. No investigation of who got their points fixed,
    Might be a very interesting list of the politically well connected who could demand
    attention from Senior Garda Officers who require political support to progress their career.

    744 divided by 2 = 372 people (using the 2 points per offence)... at 80 a pop = 29,760 .....let him start by repaying that lost revenue to the state, which I'd take out of any severance/redundancy package. I mean ... the nerve...

    They have some neck to use the excuse that to spend money on an investigation into the penalty points would be a waste of taxpayers money , like they give a monkeys , after some of the stuff that was going on at Templemore , they really are taking the pish

    The next time you see one of Hammer's trade mark regurgitation posts about the "recovery" will someone ask him how he thinks we're an economically successful country if we can't even afford to prosecute criminal wrong-doing?

    Twice now in a week we've seen that cost has been a determining factor in pursuing scumbags, so it's either one of two things:

    1 - his beloved FG are very happy with a crooked police force or
    2 - the recovery isn't "real"

    Neither is great for FG, but I'd like Hammer to tell me which he thinks it is.

    You don't have to. Read the actual report.
    Have just read the Report--excellent piece of work--pulls no punches--a credit to GSOC and fully vindicates Alan Shatter

    Strange that cost should be seen as grounds for not pursuing corruption. Have we not had quite a few costly Tribunals on the principle that corruption has to be tackled? And they cost an awful lot more than a million euro.

    Cost was also a big factor in pursuing the false breath tests...amazing, the government can find a €30m supplement for Garda overtime in time for Christmas shopping but can't find €1m, or MAYBE €2m to get to the bottom of the illegal cancellation of penalty points..amazing.

    5 Million probably would have covered the costs of both investigations , only problem is where on earth would they find a spare 5 mill
