    What has this to do with Naughten's incompetence?

    I will tell you what it has to do with it.

    There should be no department of climate action. It was never part of any parties manifesto. The Greens got 2 seats here and 1 in Britain. Climate action has no mandate. Naughton is imposing more carbon taxes on a country with such abject poverty. He is buying out distressed wind farms. 92 million gone into the black hole of Gealectric and now he is supporting public investment in Greencoat Renewables. They are buying out as many distressed wind farms as they can get. These are loss makers. He supports divesting in fossil fuel.

    Meanwhile the German government that are pushing Naughton to do this have just signed a deal to invest 9 billion euros in a fossil fuel pipeline. They are making a fool out of him.

    Is it incompetence or does he really not give a flying fcvk?

    Even Michael Lowry wouldn't be this blatant about it.

    Minister s Dáil lunch

    A spokesperson for the Minister for Communications has said Denis Naughten paid for lunch for a businessman involved in the tender for the National Broadband Plan.

    The lunch for David McCourt and members of his family cost €37 and it was deducted from Minister's Naughten's salary in July under the Oireachtas payments system, the spokesperson said.

    The minister also said that he met Mr McCourt on one other occasion, as part of a meeting attended by the Secretary General and Assistant Secretary of the Department of Communications on 26 June.

    This afternoon, Mr Naughten had said he did not know who paid for the lunch in the members' restaurant at Leinster House in April.

    A minister resigning early? Must be a first for Irish politics.

    Whither the broadband roll out now?

    Mr Naughten said "it is clear the Taoiseach does not have confidence in me" after meeting with him last night.

    He said: "I'm now left in that impossible stark position a politician never wants to be in. Do I make the decision to resign or wait for the decision to be made for me?... This is more about optics than fibre optics."
    Good riddance to an utter incompetent.
