It’s the cosmic incompetency of it all that so impresses me;

Northern Ireland Finance Minister Sammy Wilson is blaming an oversight in his private office for a delay in giving the finance committee details of executive spending worth billions.

The finance minister has apologised to the committee, but one member has said he is not satisfied with the explanation. The committee has to scrutinise the latest budget bill. However, the minister failed for two successive weeks to ensure the figures were with the committee. Last week an official told the committee that was because the minister was still considering the bill. The minister subsequently wrote to apologise for the delay blaming an oversight in the private office.

With morons like this running the equivalent of our Exchequer, is it any wonder our economy languishes in the economic doldrums?
