The Irish water debacle: a timeline
broadsheet.ie have put together a great timelline for the activities of Irish water thus far. It makes for very interesting reading. That is, If you are into reading about how our lords and masters and their capitalist friends are taking us for a ride at our own expense and the loss of what should be very basic state run services that should never be run as for profit services. After reading this expect it to be your blood and not the kettle that is boiling!
This timeline is a must read. It goes from November 2006 up to the present. Here's a snippet:
March 16, 2012: It’s reported Denis O’Brien has bought Siteserv for €45.4million in cash, with the Siteserv board agreeing to the sale of its business to Millington, an Isle-of-Man-based acquisition vehicle controlled by Mr O’Brien which was established in 2011. The deal is subject to shareholder approval. It’s reported that Siteserv’s directors say they consider the deal to be ‘fair and reasonable as far as shareholders are concerned’. Sitserv says as part of the disposal plan, IBRC has agreed to accept payment of an amount which is less that the full amount owed by Siteserv to it.
Following on from this, broadsheet have posted this article dealing with the rejected siemens bid. Again here's a snippet:
Independent Senator Sean Barrett addressed Junior Environment Minister Fergus O’Dowd about the offer from Siemens.
Broadsheet also posted about the ridiculous logo that cost 20,000 euro. (see picture). It apparently used an open source font which is freely available on the net and the contract did not go out to tenure. More easy cash for insiders it seems.
Great work by broadsheet in covering what some might say was
a huge and expensive government scam being pulled on the Irish public.
I hope broadsheet continue their excellent exposes of this matter.
