And the counter's back!

Evidently the taxpayer-funded work on the Oireachtas Record, which you pay for, is still not worth doing properly to the current tender holders. The clock goes back up, updated of course to reflect the now-very-long-indeed period that's elapsed since the last time they actually did the job they're being paid for on the day it's supposed to be done.

For the record: two weeks late (compare the timestamp in the footer to the day being transcribed) will not suffice. -- John Handelaar

Now merely counting the seconds until these idiots are fired.

They've had two months to contemplate the possibility of doing their jobs properly, but here we are after the summer recess and at the time of writing the evidence from looking at the official record from yesterday is:

  • All the same amateur, sloppy, lazy, stupid behaviour remains from before, except
  • They've now found a brand new way of cocking it up to add to the dozens that previously existed. Today they're not even bothering to tag Written Answers at all.

You can expect a return for the Big Counter of Idiocy, it would appear, later on today.
