Stop wasting our tax on scrappage

IS it just me or is anybody else impressed/annoyed by the strength of the lobby group that is the Society of the Irish Motor Industry in its insistence that the scrappage scheme be maintained at a time when every penny is precious?

It is essentially state sponsorship (from Mr and Mrs PAYE's money) of a scheme whose net effect is to channel money from the Irish State to foreign car manufacturers while lining the pockets of Bill Cullen en route (Renault being one of the biggest beneficiaries).

I certainly do not want my tax money spent like this.
