It seems that Leo & Co are actively discussing hiring several hundred additional customs & immigration officials to man border-posts in the event of a hard Brexit. I don't believe he has any need to. In conversation with a current non-clinical, administrative HSE employee, who holds the generic title of "manager" of something or other, it seems by his own admission, that he and in excess of 2,500 of his colleagues spend their days in their HSE offices on their HSE computers playing Tetris, Poker and other games. They have no responsibilities, have no subordinates and other the personnel dept. and each other have little or no interactions with other HSE staff or service users. Each of these individuals is paid a minimum of €100k per annum, plus pension and whatever other benefits they are entitled to because of their job titles. Could Simon, Leo and their powerful friends in the PS unions look at redeploying these idle, highly paid people, improving HSE productivity and budgeting and avoiding more unnecessary overhead for the price of a little work and training? €250,000,00 plus pension and overhead costs anyone? And of course fire Simon, his senior health & HSE officials.
