I’m surprised no one remembers this:
” Thursday 03 Mar 2007
Ahern rules out 20 extra enforcement office staff.
It was extraordinary that the director of the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement needed another 20 staff when he already had 36, Taoiseach Bertie Ahern told the Dáil. Mr Ahern said that the director, Paul Appleby, was getting additional staff, but not 20. It was a question of prioritising staff, and they had increased the number of labour inspectors. Mr Appleby’s office was getting four staff this year “and it is hoped he will receive another four”.”
Sure feck it, let’s throw a couple of billion at the problem to fix it now instead.
