Thanks to Tom Raftery for this one. He’s referring to an Irish Independent article – Internet tsar to make children’s surfing safer. A noble aspiration obviously, but as pointed out by Tom, the article has the following statement:
Although it will have no power to fine internet service providers, Mr Lenihan said that he would not hesitate to provide the OIS with “legislative teeth” if necessary.
Another one! A regulator with no power. A talking shop. Jobs for the boys and girls maybe? Combating rising unemployment in Ireland with makey-uppy jobs?
Where will it ever end?
