Competition Authority should look at itself

I WAS somewhat amused to hear that the farmers' protest in Dublin was organised as a result of a raid on the IFA offices by the Competition Authority.

I googled the said authority and discovered that it comprises four members, two former civil servants, one former public company employee and a solicitor.

I am quite certain that if one were to compare their salaries with those of their counterparts abroad they would be anything other than competitive.

So here we have the uncompetitive seeking out uncompetitive practices -- someone should send them a mirror.
