A member of the RTÉ Authority has written to RTÉ management to complain about Rip Off Republic, the consumer advocacy television programme fronted by Eddie Hobbs.
Stephen O'Byrnes, a former general secretary of the Progressive Democrats (PDs) who was recently reappointed to the RTE Authority by the government, wrote to RTE complaining about the programe.
Eddie Hobbs is 100% correct, this country is a rip-off!
Try feeding a family and clothing them and you will see just how much of a rip-off it is.
I am not surprised that a PD finds this hard to stomach as they have been doing their best to convince people that Rip-Off-Ireland is a myth.
