Its ridiculous .... fs ye wouldn't run a corner shop without taking minutes of meetings .. its seems that "post it notes" was the order of the day :? .....

but seriously, how could you run "any" business without minutes and "actions" being taken .. its quite remarkable !
They are not called dupers for nothing .

The sort of meetings should be recorded for the record . This would also stop politicians speaking out of both sides of their mouths .

There would be a record of what they actually said in official meetings .

different matter entirely .. nothing to do with RHI though so perhaps you should start a new thread on it..

Once again, do try to stay on topic !
The common thread is the appearance of these figures to whom the ministers seem so deferential.

As Stormont imploded, SF Finance Minister Mairtín Ó Muilleoir was in constant contact with unseen - and
therefore publicly unaccountable - senior republican figures about a key decision.

One of those was Padraic Wilson, long trusted to act for the IRA.:rolleyes2:

Well, the inquiry's finally come to an end, but it gave us all one final laugh at the expense of Arlene and her trusty SPAD, Andrew Crawford before the curtain finally came down.
DUP adviser 'said fill our boots' over RHI, inquiry hears - BBC News

A former DUP adviser allegedly said "we could fill our boots" with money from NI's flawed green energy scheme because he believed it was coming from the Treasury, an inquiry has heard.
The claim was made by senior civil servant Andrew McCormick.
He was appearing on the final day of evidence at the RHI inquiry.
----------------------------
Mr McCormick, who is a former permanent secretary in the enterprise department, said Mr Crawford had made the comment to him at a dinner in October 2016.
He described it as a direct conversation with Mr Crawford, who was "very relaxed and smiling".
Mr McCormick said that led him to believe Mr Crawford had misunderstood how the scheme was funded, but he said evidence uncovered by the inquiry pointed to the view that Mr Crawford was aware of the potential for the abuse of the scheme and the financial impact it could have.
These muppets should never be let near a ministerial position in government ever again.

It won’t be long now before you’ll be going to the shops for him .
They couldn't make us go to the shops for them when they were armed so they have no influence or power over us now that they surrendered.

Many would call it lying.
Arlene Foster has said it is possible that an important segment of her sworn evidence to the RHI Inquiry is “wrong”, relating to when she was told about the belief that her Spad delayed RHI cost controls.

Pure comedy stuff on the Nolan Radio Show earlier . Jonathan Bell going around recording everyone including Peter Robinson ( his mentor ) and actually recording Stephen Nolan as well .

Do the Tories and the British people know of which they are dealing with . Blow £500 million on hot air .
