Postcode System by 2008

The Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources, Noel Dempsey today said the planned new postcode system wil be introduced by January 1, 2008.

Mr Dempsey said that every address in Ireland will be identified by a series of letters and numbers from January 2008. An Post reckon it is unnecessary while Fine Gael have expressed their scepticism that it will ever get off the ground. DHL express spokesman Bernard McCarthy says the current system, which relies on local knowledge, is outdated.

This is a complete waste of time and money. Once again Mr Dempsey has shown he can't leave anything alone. He was a joke as Minister for Education and now he's proving a joke as Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources.

Since one aspect of his job entails 'marine' work, can't we just shove him in a submarine somewhere deep below the Irish Sea? Now that's what I call decentralisation!
