    People have the notion you pay professionals for their time. You pay for their expertise
    People demonise Fianna Fail and they are entitled to do so but same people are not capable of answering a few awkward questions themselves.

    This is an area that really needs to be tackled. Fee paying public are being screwed bigtime.

    For that amount of money you'd at least expect that he'd tell you that you had some serious illness.

    Under the troika all the professional services were to be dealt with

    Funnily it hasn't been tackled, yet we need reforms of every other sector, we need to widen the tax base BUT we have yet to tackle the professional services

    Sounds like you have a very efficient doctor, diagnoses, prescription in 3 minutes......well you go what you went for.

    Last time I went to the doctor (verruca on my son's foot) diagnosis and writing the prescription took about a minute, however, the doc engaged in some un-necessary blather which took it up to about 4 minutes to justify the bill of 50 euro!

    You pay for both. But sometimes you get neither.
