If they were serious about decentralisation they would have given serious thought to moving the entire government apparatus to a new single location outside Dublin, setting up an administrative capital, a proposal we were promoting here some two-and-a-half years ago.
Moving the seat of government is dramatic but not radical. There are plenty of precedents, the most recent being the German government’s decision to move its capital from Bonn to Berlin.

What sort of example is the Bonn/Berlin one to use? It completely contradicts their argument. Berlin is a city of almost 3.5 million, whilst Bonn is a city of only 300,000. The reason for the movement back was due to reunification.
