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.
