Tasc: Economy cannot cope with multibillion-euro cuts | Breaking News - eircom.net
At a guess I suspect that this interest group is composed substantially or exclusively of those well-heeled types employed in the public sector. Let me think-they want cuts for others but not for the higher paid types employed across public sector (other than doctors!) and the vaste swathes of quangoland.
How can one come to any other conclusion as their wish-list does not appear to identify the cutting of a single item of wasteful expenditure or duplication across the wider public service that might affect themselves and those they claim to represent.
If they want salaries of consultant doctors cut why not look at unversity professors or lecturers? Oops Tasc has lots of university types!!!
So let us continue with farcical duplication of services across all the local authorities throughout the state, masssive duplication of third level courses at third level, the disgrace that is FAS, disgrace of the thousands of overpaid HSE managers while no unit for cystic fibrosis, the multitude of VEC, the almost endless number of quangos, slush funds for social partners, and bodies that nobody has ever heard of-each with their own CEO, director of IT ,HR director, director of this or that etc etc all of which makes the adminstration of the Greater Manchester (with same population) area look like a freak.
All this waste will continue while the carers, blind, elderly requiring home helps will be squeezed so that middle class PS can pretend that they are concerned about the unemployed.
