Michael Clifford is right when he says that ‘the recession that this country endured was wasted’ to the extent that there has been ‘little change’ in the ‘negative features that landed the country in the mire’ (Irish Examiner, August 26).
Look at attempts to ensure that water supply and sewage is paid for. It is described daily as a ‘debacle’, ‘disaster’, ‘fiasco’ etc. This overlooks that the real debacle was the decisions made during the boom by those in charge.
