Complete lack of forward planning

READING about the Transport Minister warming himself in Malta while we all froze and then waiting with his family for a Ryanair flight home I wondered why we have a €60m government jet with, presumably, a very able air force crew trained for all weather.

Surely one of its functions is to bring ministers home in times of national crisis.

Failing that, you would wonder why our Dail denizens are not equipped with laptops and proper internet service that could be checked once a day for important news from back home. And then email directives to their departments.
