Indeed, if only the visionaries and prophets were let get their way the whole time, without regard to practicalities, details, long-term costs and other suchlike, we'd be in paradise, and the visionaries would have statues erected to their brilliance on every streetcorner.
What's that you say?
The self-appointed visionaries had the run of the country for fifteen years and we had to be bailed out by Germany, who are very much on the side of practical details, penny-pinching and costing in advance?
Oh, I must be thinking of another type of 'visionary'. My mistake.
Someone should tell the germans that some buck on boards.ie reckons we'll make 200m a year based on arah y'know yerself system thinking, I'm sure they'll stump up the cash for an 'ambitious' and 'daring' plan to tear up a middling-interest industrial town in the middle of a recession and turn it into Las Vegas, Mayo.
You couldn't fuppin right this stuff, honestly.
