The Department of Finance was intimately involved in the Bailout, the Banking Crisis and Other Economic Issues. Kevin Cardiff was one of the Big Wheels in that department. How does someone who seems to have swallowed wholesale the assurances by Irish banks which have since been shown to be lies get PROMOTED within the department to the number One slot? http://www.broadsheet.ie/2010/12/14/kevin-cardiff-the-smartest-guy-in-the-room/ How did someone like that then get put forward for an Auditor's Job, his department having apparently miscounted 3.6 billion Euro? http://www.independent.ie/national-...vant-cardiff-for-euro180k-eu-job-2927521.html Why does someone like Nessa Childers whose conscience makes her object to this person being nominated to the European Court of Auditors get threatened by her own party? http://www.rte.ie/news/2011/1115/childersn.html I am really, really, REALLY getting tired of seeing people who have what seems on the facts presented by the media to be questionable competence get promoted to positions of authority and high earnings.
