I sincerely doubt that the numbers are the same - have you been in the motor tax office lately?
No one is saying that Mayo coco are computer whizzes - they are not. But they paid IBM reeeeeeellllyyy big bucks to reduce their numbers and to redeploy their staff to more useful pursuits. But at least the motor tax system appears to work - but at what cost to the taxpayer?
Take a look at the wasteful expenditure paid to rip-off private 'enterprise' to develop such BOMBS as 'mobhaile' and 'local' Ireland over the years? Nevermind the biggies such as PPars and a number of other 'consultant' private sector rip-offs that you and I have had to pay for to absolutely no benefit beyond the experience that says - you a sucker - we wil get you later with the banking and building rip-off?
And it's all 'cos private is better than public?? Mantra. Just typical private sector sucking at the tit of the taxpayer and producing total rubbish - but rubbish dictated by the political masters who were predominantly the PDS that minor party ppl the - 'oh where have they gone the pds?'
Of course with the FF crew swallowed it whoel and were like rabbits trapped in the headlights like toni blare overawed when talking to GW Bush and about to dicate war on terror - just rabbiting on about how private sector competition is much better for your wealth and HEALTH. A war on stupidity. A party that no longer exists and a war that was lost.
Now we have as a result a banking sector that depends on the taxpayer for its very existence. But won't loan money to small businesses and taxpayers who are paying for its survival. Now that's the definition of ironic.
But yet the dyed in the wool 'private is better than public brigade' or should that be 'died' in the wool 'private is better than public'? or even 'private parts are better than pubic' sector advocates - now require all sectors to provide rubbish service?
