Irish Water, the last quango?

The setting up in Ireland of a new separate water utility (Irish Water) has not been smooth.
It hasn’t even been bumpy; it’s become a text book : ‘how not to deal with citizens and mess up trust between the state and voters’, political science case study.

No thousands of euros thrown at consultants and PR firms, by government departments, could buy them out of the mess.

I dearly hope that political parties ditch the optics and learn from all this, take note that come election time candidates will be judged on their deeds during this and other debacles and how well they listened to their constituents.

Could Irish Water be the governments’ last quango in paradise?
