Reply To: Decentralisation – the end…?
I agree. There was an excellent article in the Times last week which outlined exactly how disjointed our government is. The example used was the Governments Drug Strategy, the administration of which covers about 6 different departments.
I have no problem with federalism… that would be a more effective form of decentralisation but surely the most logocal and cost effective form would be to strengthen local government. This present plan is so blatantly an attempt to provide perks for certain constituencies… witness Willie O’Dea setting out his cabinet stall with a promise to be Minister for Limerick
