Staff at Central Bank a class act

I NOTE from reports over the weekend that the Central Bank has warned its staff that they need to consider working longer hours and taking less time off.

Professional staff in the bank work 32.5 hours per week, or a whopping 6.5 hours a day. This is just not real-world stuff. In fact, my primary school-going kids spend longer in class than these so-called watchdogs of our financial services industry spend in the office.

No wonder we are in the calamitous economic position we are in. Perhaps our worldrenowned leader Brian Cowen will demonstrate those leadership qualities so endearing to others and reform this monstrosity.
