I asked about the tendering process for Broadband. The Minister waffled, so most of his responce is not recorded here. In particular he avoided any reference to my query regarding DENNIS O BRIEN, who is probably the only one that will end up getting what he wants of the debacle
Ironic that they got rid of Naughton because he could be perceived as being corrupt, but now rely on an ex minister (Lowry) that a tribunal has found to actually be corrupt! From Broadband, to Cervicalcheck and beyond, there is a toxic relationship between big business and Govt.
SEXISM ALIVE AND WELL on the committee I sit on in the Dáil. I had to fight for my turn to speak today. I spoke on the fiasco BROADBAND SERVICES in this country. Why is the delivery of broadband such a ‘cock-up’? Because it relies on privatised services and the ‘market’. Why don’t we have the state deliverying and owning essential services, like when the ESB (entirely state-owned at the time) brought electricity to entire the country? STUFF THE MARKET, it serves only the millionaires and fails the people.
