Irish Water muddying democracy
It is beyond beggaring belief that a publicly-funded institution such as Irish Water has held a series of operational meetings, including scheduled meetings with its then sponsoring minister (Phil Hogan) - and that no minutes or paperwork exist for the majority of those meetings.
Fine Gael and Labour pledged to carry out a "Democratic Revolution" should they be elected in 2011 -and the fuel running this new departure was going to be "openness and transparency".
Why the absolute evisceration of that pledge as evidenced in the above example? Why is minute-taking and recordings of meetings and decisions thereof, not a basic, mandatory requirement?
