Fit For The Future



This morning.

Croke Park, Dublin.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar at the Construction Conference sponsored by the Sunday Business Post where he spoke to delegates of the Construction Industry Federation.

Via The Irish Times:

Mr Varadkar told the conference  the Government would publish a new planning bill shortly.

He acknowledged that it was frustrating for builders and planners to see good projects end up facing sometimes “vexatious” judicial reviews in the High Court.

“That’s something, in my view, that’s going to have to change and this bill will change it,” the Taoiseach pledged.

Good times.

    i get in a rage every time i just see his face now .. i know what’s coming next will be an insensitive comment at best, or announcing something horrific.. this time, it’s announcing doing away with “pesky planning laws” as if the building sector didn’t have enough free reign, now they’ll get to plough down listed buildings to build hotels without courts blocking them. varadkar is in the wrong game, if he wants to go be a business man, go do it, stay out of politics, it’s not for him.

    In other words, any fupper who objects to energy-hungry employment-free cloud data centres will have Leo to deal with.

    With energy security a major issue, why are we so supine in this country to allow US tech companies continue to keep an eye on every click you make, every sound you make on Alexa, every picture you take from Amazon ring security?

      The objection came from the owner of a rival site for the data centre….

      Seriously eoin, read past the first paragraph before parroting word-for-word what you have just read online somewhere.

          I did, and they told me that they were building tens of thousands of new homes made out of cast iron and they would be politically bulletproof. :-)

          I hope they’re not made of straw! Did they happen to mention if they’d have broadband?
