More government competence

I can't really see why the Tories are kicking up a stink:

Millions of pounds of British taxpayers’ money has been mistakenly used to fund the health service in Ireland, the Conservatives said yesterday.

Britain has been overpaying the Irish Government by an estimated €200 million (£180 million) a year in a deal between the two countries, prompting the Conservatives to call for a parliamentary inquiry into the “waste” of NHS funds.

How many hospitals would that pay for, then? How many deficits could be wiped out at the stroke of a pen?

How much of OUR FUCKING TAX MONEY have the Irish been enjoying the benefit of?

And how accurate is this fucking pikey bribe anyway? Sounds like another fucking Barnett formula.
