Government has no clue

«The government hands out €6bn in subsidies and grants every year but often has little idea of what is achieved with the money, the national audit office said in a damning report on Thursday. The effect of the subsidies is often only partially assessed if at all, and subsidies found to be a waste of time are never cancelled, the audit office said. By law, subsidies should be assessed properly every five years, but this only happens in 50% of cases. This can lead ministers to take the wrong decisions, the office warned. In a reaction, finance minister Jan Kees de Jager told news agency ANP that he did not plan to introduce formal rules for evaluating subsidy payments or to bring in a standard stop on payments if they are not having the desired effect. However, there will be a better overview of the subsidy system from next year, ANP quoted the minister as saying.»

Cá como lá, ou lá como cá, o mundo anda à nora. O actual governo chegou com ideias de emagrecimento corporativo e o povo achou bem, sorrateiramente os lobbies entraram pelos gabinetes e garantiram para si o património que lhe permita continuar a brincar e no final a dieta recai mais sobre o povo.

Está na altura do lobby do povo fazer-se ouvir, porque os outros já o fizeram. De reafirmar que o mandato de cortar as mordomias e o supérfluo.
