Came across this quote again from 2005 from Mary Harney:
“I think the idea of some group of citizens setting themselves up with absolutely no justification, to enquire into others, is something that I always thought was quite sinister and inappropriate.”
As there is now extreme justification for the establishment of a new CPI, surely Ms Harney would welcome its revivial.
Amongst its early work, the new CPI could start digging into the whole banking mess, politicians expenses, public sector waste etc. Do you agree the establishment of a new CPI is both neccessary and vitally important?
