Senior civil servants have colluded in the destruction of the Irish economy. From Benchmarking, de-centralisation, ludicrously high pay rates across senior public service, absent financial regulation, defence of Ceann Comhairle expenses the hand of senior civil servants is to be seen.
It is not acceptable to simply claim that these policies were initiated by FF/PD ministers. All along the way detailed policy was formulated and implemented by senior civil servants who had the option of resigning or at the very least of putting their opposition in writing.
A whole swathe of senior civil servants need to be demoted to clerical officer grade unless they can PROVE that they have NOT colluded and indeed formulated the destruction of the Irish economy. They would still have jobs-only at clerical officer level.
