I returned to Ireland last night to hear that staff in the Central Bank and the Financial Regulator had gone on strike for a day. Oh dear God no!!! What will happen without those brave people regulating the banks and making sure the economy is kept on an even keel..... oh wait, aren't those the people who haven't been working for the last 10 years and got us into this mess with the banks?
The fact that they still have their jobs and aren't searching for food scraps in the bins outside the banks they failed to control is an prime example of what is wrong in the Irish civil service. The fact that they went on strike is crazy, someone should have locked the doors when the fools were out of the office.
