Once more unto the breach
Wicklow County Council was yesterday fined €355,000 for admitted breaches of health and safety.
Like fuck they were!
After apparently trampling all over various health and safety rules which lead to the death of two firemen, this is the outcome?
Who pays that fine?
The councilors or the various bods they have on overpaid jobs?
No fucking way.
I pay the fine.
Me and every other tax payer.
Wicklow Council couldn't give a flying shite. They just write a cheque and it's business as usual. The money comes out of their council funds which are paid for by the taxpayer.
Now if the individuals who were actually responsible had to pay out of their own pockets I would be happy.
I would be even happier if the incompetent fucks lost their jobs.
But that won't happen, will it?
As usual, I end up paying.
Councils are enemies of the people even those that work for them.
The old problem – no accountability.
With apologies if you have already found that site.
I have seen similar! If only I could divert a few of those figures into my account to top it up a bit? I'm not greedy – a couple of minutes would do.
Wicklow CC were always, and still are, a bunch of useless cunts.
They're quite good at repairing roads that don't need repairing?
Budgets etc must be maintained dn'cha know?
Only because they don't fix the ones that do need it.
This happens every time a government agency, NHS, utility company, bank etc is fined. Such fines are simply a type of windfall tax on customers of the naughty organisation – it's your fault for being a customer of that organisation.
One thing I have learned in life – it is ALWAYS my fault!
