RTE’s Sean O’Rourke showed this morning that while he may have a political questioning edge he definitely doesn’t have an edge when it comes to probing anything remotely technical. Minister Alex White TD knows this and was allowed waffle his usual red herring of “we can’t have a sequenced post code”. In fairness he got

What we have got is an very conspicuous Labour Party collaboration, apparently aimed at denying Ireland and its people access to a useful postcode in order to ensure the competitive benefit of An Post and the employment benefits of the CWU and its members. Minister Pat Rabbitte agreed a major departure from the terms of
Almost 3 months after launch and Eircode is not being used by An Post, not being used by Google, not being used by satnavs, not being used by the general public and not even being used by cheerleaders such as Nightline couriers. We always found it unusual that a successful entrepreneur would support a Labour minister but
WHY EIRCODE IS NOT A POSTCODE:- 1. It does not conform with the definition of a postcode as defined by the Universal Postal Union (UPU) 2. It does not conform with the definition of an Irish National Postcode as defined in the 2011/15 Postal Act 3. It cannot be used by An Post as it

So the stoat(loc8code) is fit for purpose & agile, while the rabbit (Eircode) is bloated, slow & eventually dead…enjoy!!!

Oireachtas Committee on Transport & Communications reluctantly allow Gary Delaney to appear before it…
On Tuesday last Gary Delaney the inventor of Loc8 Codes was very reluctantly invited before the Oireachtas committee on Transport & Communications. Mr. Delaney had tried to appear before the committee for over a year during which cheerleaders of the Eircode project were given unimpeded access to the committee.
