Heads must roll over greed

SHOCKING, but not exactly surprising, is the first reaction to the news of the extraordinary extravagance of the former board of the Dublin Docklands Development Authority (DDDA).

It has been clear for some time, especially since the revelations abut the state-training agency FAS, that something has been deeply rotten at the heart of some state bodies -- perhaps of many.

Even so, the wanton waste of public money unveiled by the Irish Independent still almost beggars belief. It is the details which will jar with the public -- the Bollinger champagne; the caviar. Anger may become rage at the news of the very different treatment for community representatives on a study tour with the DDDA.
