    Default Quangos in Ireland

    Here is a list of quangos that we have in our country. FG said that they are going to do some thing about this when they get in to power there in now over two years. So if the want to find 3 or 4 billion of cuts they should start with at least the half of them straight away there is not another country in the world that has that many Quangos.http://quangos-ireland.wikia.com/wik..._Irish_Quangos

    How does Greater Machester manage without all the quangos, bords, authorities, talkshops, councils, stinktanks, semi-quangos, etc.... that the PAYE taxpayer has to feed here ?

    Not to mention the pretend private organizations, that are adept at sucking out of the taxpayer.

    It needs to stop. It is just beyond ridiculous at this stage.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Joining a political party is usually one way of proving "suitability".

    If you canvassing does quailify - as many elections as possible. And make sure you back a winner.

    Before I could do that, I would have to be in a position of finding those ficticious documents......last I heard they disappeared into the abyss.
