Banks and investors make billions of Euros bad investment. Result: given €billions.
The unemployed can’t pay €500 in electricity bills for two months. Result: Sued.
The CEO of ESB is still earning €400,000 a year, after a 15% pay cut. Yet, ESB is willing to incur legal costs to attempt to get a measly €500 back less than a half-year outstanding from the unemployed. Makes sense.
