Nicely done, Joe. He highlights the fact that all of the known issues with
the pilots were not revealed to the public at the time, and the fact that
the so called cost-savings were a total fabrication, because it actually
costs more to staff the electronic booths than it saves in counting costs.

They also had a clip from Michael McDowell from last week, saying that the
issue might have to be reconsidered
(http://dynamic.rte.ie/av/228-2136289.smil) and from Michael Noonan, saying
that there's no point in waiting any longer, tehy're not ginng to be used,
so we should scrap them now, rather than spending any more money storing and
insuring them than necessary. He also suggests that it might be possible to
sell them to some American states, though it would be a bit of a hardr sell,
I'd imagine! http://dynamic.rte.ie/av/228-2136288.smil
