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

I am on the Dáil committee that questioned Facebook executives over shoddy practices, highlighted in a recent Channel 4 programme. I put a series of questions to them. They were slick and clever, but many questions remained without a clear or satisfactory answer, and in some cases facts presented to them were simply denied . You can listen to their answers on the Oireachtas web site via these links: https://bit.ly/2LLtUZu (go to the end of video); and here: https://bit.ly/2Mdx70i (see the start of the video).

The €5million FG spin machine is faulty! It let Leo spill the beans on how you REALLY do business in Ireland – get a Minister to make a call to the planning department. Sorted.
