An Oireachtas “Vetting Committee” In action.

Posted by Jason O on Nov 18, 2011 in Irish Politics |

Transport minister Leo Varadkar recently announced that the newly appointed heads of the CIE companies had been “vetted” by an Oireachtas committee. Andrea Pappin, the Miss Marple of political fact finding, writes about it here and dug up the relevent committee hearing here.

I suggest you read it, if only for the bitching at each other from the members of the committee about who came late, who is not being “respected”, and whose phone is ringing during the hearing. Hilarious.

Who vetted the vetting committee?

Who vetted the vetting committee?

The public. You know, the folk who elect the Dáil.
