OK but I just thought it was ironic that your solution to the whole thing had already been pre-empted by those nasty Fianna Fail politicians specifically Martin Cullen!
OK solutions to your woes:
Illegal Immigrants - deport them (oh sorry the bad government just sent 60 back just yesterday on an airbus to Romania and Moldova)
Tribunal Costs - make them earn their money (but aren't they already making a profit by raking in all that unpaid tax money)
Anti-Competitive Practices - make them cut their prices - (oh but then they'd have to lay off lots more employees in order to achieve that)
Inflated House Prices - local authorities do their job and zone for housing only around villages and towns compulsory purchase the land and sell to builders at a fixed price. (Oh but then the auctioneer-politicians wouldn't get their slice of the cake)
Enda Kenny - don't sack his JUSTICE spokesman who can't obey the most talked about law in decades (oh but that would make him look really foolish!)
If you don't vote against the guys you don't want to get in you won't have any effect. Ignoring them by not voting or attempting to spoil your vote (a big electro magnet might work) won't make them go away you know.
So make a list of all the auctioneer councillors, all the big land-owning councillors, the developer councillors and circulate it to your friends and tell them don't vote for these pocket-liners because they are not good for the country. That's how you will have some chance of changing things otherwise emigrate.
