There was plenty enough taxis and a reasonable scheme to increase supply in place. What was lacking was alternative forms of public transport at certain times of the day/night. In any event, folk enjoyed queuing for cabs, it was part of the fabric of the city and a way of life, a rich cultural experience if you will.

You didn't have to buy a new motor, back then there wasn't even a 3 year rule so any clapped out shitebox would suffice. It was perfectly obvious that the authorities had no regard for how the next recession would impact the trade, they were only interested in maximising boom time demand to avoid investing in any other form of public transport and employing the unemployable. We have some artificial barriers to entry this time round so the next recession might not be quite as bad... but it will come and it will hurt those who aren't prepared.
Jeez ratti yur takin the takin the piss cup wit that one sayin people enjoyed walking home ....as regards semi state ....
I was highly trained and excellent at me job ......
But I wanted to be a cnut like the rest of the taxi scum

And no ....there  wasnt enough taxis in dublin .....

That's mad I never wanted to do this job.It was the last option I could think of to pay the mortgage when the courier work dried up.The thoughts of having some stranger sitting behind me used to give me anxiety.Now I probably give the passengers anxiety..

I'm sure most, if not all, Semi-State employees were perfectly competent. However, as Semi-States their role in the economy wasn't restricted to merely providing a service, it included creating employment to create wealth through the circulation of money i.e. man gets wage, govt takes tax, man buys pint, govt takes tax, publican pays barman, govt takes tax, barman buys smokes, govt takes tax, etc, etc... Privatisation removed that tool from Govt so alternatives were required.

That was a bit of sarcasm there oxi.  Your original post just quoted Charles' post and was then blank, so my well said observation was being a bit sarcastic but then you edited your post to include your own words. How anever it turned out ok  :)
