When the civil service becomes self-service

Kevin Myers is absolutely right to say that we have the right to know if our last Finance Minister's ill-health affected our economic collapse.

Our Department of Finance oversaw the most brutal Budget in the State's history. Then they awarded themselves a bonus. That is NOT a civil or public service. That is a self-service. They seemed to believe we would be the only country ever in history to have a property boom that did not burst. That makes them unfit for purpose.

You cannot build a house on faulty foundations or run a modern western state with a dysfunctional regime.
