    I have already done that, but I see no move yet to establish a Federal Republic....

    Yeah, funnily enough, that's how democracy works. You don't get to change the course of Government with one letter. It would be just a little bit impractical for things to work like that.

    from covering letter to survey

    Questionnaire Survey

    No danger of a load of councillors suggesting that there should be inquiries into zoning and planning over the last 20 years at council level in Ireland?

    It would be like turkeys writing to the local butcher requesting christmas be brought forward. This exercise is a waste of public money by that auctioneer abusing ministerial powers to protect his professional interests in keeping the corrupt zoning and planning system across Ireland.

    No amount of distracting questionnaires hoping to come up with more pointless tinkering around the marketing edges of corruption at local level in Irish politics is going to attend to that major issue.

    Why can't govt ask people about loc govt reform for a change?

    They have a referendum on their issues, why not on property tax and local govt reform?

    It could ask "Which would you prefer: A radical overhaul of local government, cutting costs and top salaries -OR- A property tax?"

    The last government did.They published a green paper called Stronger Local Government (or Democracy, cant remember).You will find it on the Department of Environment website.Probably be able to read the public submissions as well.They never got around to doing anymore because it all went tits up.They had the revenue commissioners do a report that included local government funding as well.( it recommended a property tax, amongst other things, as far as I remember)

    So you don't want local Government to be properly funded?
