7/4/15: Another Quango for Ireland to Undo Ineffectiveness of a Host of Quangos

Only in Ireland... the Government that has:

  • One office of the Financial Services Ombudsman,
  • One office of the Financial Regulator,
  • One office of Consumer Protection in the Central Bank,
  • One office of the Consumer Protection Agency,
  • One Insolvency Services
the same Government that has promised, upon election, to cut the number of quangos in Ireland is now seeking to establish a new quango to deal with the failure of all of the above quangos with the issue of banks veto in personal insolvency deals.

And it gets more absurd - the only reason the entire problem arises is... the Government decision to grant the banks full and asymmetric veto power in the insolvency deals.

You cannot make this up. Really...
