    There'll be a significant cost to it but the saving on time and hassle for everyone will be far greater. It will also shut down some of the whinging about welfare fraud etc.

    If anyone wants to live off the grid they can go jumping through the bureaucratic hoops, up to them. For those not wearing a tin hat or hiding a criminal lifestyle there should be an easier way to go about life.

    I think not.
    All your personal information in one place. Easy pickings for identity theft, fraud, tax evasion, terrorist financing. All real, all happening now. If nothing else, it costs you financially.

    Pity about you if it is too much hassle to go to a real person and present your credentials. If it is easy for you, it is easy for the bad lads and girls

    Scrap the PSC and replace it with itself?

    Fingal County Council are certainly not competent to be making decisions about the most important piece of infrastructure on the island. They need to stick to badly designed cycle lanes and deciding on whether Mrs Murphy can have her kitchen extension.
