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

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.
