Agree with all of that. What I don't agree with us the idea that it is teachers and nurses and gardai and binmen ( whom the Sunday Independent had a right go at last Sunday) who are now somehow to blame and the greedy bankers on bonuses and politicians (still on disappointment money it seems) are no longer responsible.
The layoff of the council road staff means that resources will be concentrated where results can be achieved - Westport will be weeded but we cannot afford to have royndabouts weeded on taxpayers money any longer while there are people on trolleys in the hospital. I could cynical and say that having a minister for tourism in your town helps.
