Is there any point in electing politicians to run the country when all they seem to do is hire PWC to produce lengthy reports on how best to do it?

How much does the govt spend every year hiring PWC to produce reports on various aspects of government? Are the civil servants who are paid to run the country incapable of producing a report in respect of the Dept's they run?

The object is to inject private sector work practices into the public sector.

I remember PwC "running" the validation phase on the .eu ccTLD. So that would be a 'no'.

We seem to be plagued by well paid experts who like the pope can never be wrong, they just swap seats and charge to audit one anothers mistakes. They probably project managed the fiasco of putting a national childrens hospital in the Mater.

And even then they forget to read them in their entirety.... giddy goats.

BRIAN Lenihan’s position as finance minister was last night called into question after he admitted not reading crucial parts of a Government-commissioned report detailing transactions in Anglo Irish Bank before it was nationalised.

Mr Lenihan also confessed he did not tell the Taoiseach or any cabinet colleague that €7 billion was deposited in Anglo by a company owned by Irish Life and Permanent (ILP) in what is being seen as a possible effort to falsify the bank’s accounts.
Labour walk out as Lenihan

The savings planned for the FFailed CP2 could be much better achieved by cutting all these parasites and the high pais in the PS.

Cyprus was just for starters

"It is possible the Irish government will find a fudge that keeps the IMF and Brussels at bay. But it shows the tensions that remain inside the eurozone, which, with its austerity obsession intact, is likely to suffer many more convulsions."

Audittinc and Consulting companies have a track record in Ireland which is nothing short of abysmal.

Their fingerprints aare all over the mistakes of the last fifteen years like stamps of approval for each and every phuck that occurred.

Let's look at the roll of dishonour from these hoors in suits.

Auditting the accounts of Anglo, over many years
helping the HSE spend their way into the PPARS scandal,
report on the Bertie Bowl,
help write the contract for the Cowen Can,
provide professional services for the Dublin docklands Development authority fiasco
nominate Denis the Menace for Business man of the year,
praise Pravda,
audit the accounts of the bank of Fingers,
and

produce numerous quango bosses.

The answer that these private sector quangos in recepit of state contracts deserve is not even NO.

It is much more extreme than that. It is simply Go&FOff.

RTÉ contributed €384 million to the Irish economy in 2011 excluding any tax paid to the State, according to an independent report by PwC.

The report also said that the broadcaster and its employees paid over €78 million in tax during the same year.
