Letters to the Editor

The constant media and Opposition questions to various ministers about whether they still have confidence in the Garda Commissioner are missing the point.

Removing one person will not remove the systemic culture of ineptitude, incompetence, mismanagement and cover-ups that has become an ingrained culture of An Garda Síochána.

There are simply too many bad apples in the Garda that the barrel itself has become rotten and worm-infested. The never-ending drip-drip of Garda scandals has left the institution so beyond recovery that disbandment is the only honourable way out.
