plug the budget shortfall of £1.9bn in Northern Ireland is a £2,000 monthly levy on mobile phone masts. Anyone notice any faulty logic at work?
Some of Northern Ireland's rural areas already suffer from some of the patchiest mobile phone coverage anywhere in the UK. It's a nuisance for residents, visitors and it sure as heck discourages business. Will the communications giants be rushing to plug these gaps at £24,000 per year per mast?
Ironically some the areas worst affected are Sinn Féin strongholds.
Poorly thought out, 6th form financials from republicans? Who would've thunk it!
