What is truth?

Poor Mr.Bernard Durkan tells us he will not be giving back his pension (€5,483)

Listen to Bernard  click Bernard Durkan TD

But Bernard is not the only one of the Dail Poor in receipt of a nifty addition to his Dail salary

Speaking yesterday, Mr Lenihan said that it was open to anyone to make a contribution from their pension to the Minster for Finance.

“Many can reflect on the difficulty economic circumstances Ireland is in and decide to assist voluntarily,” he said.

Its time this Gravy train was stopped in its tracks, write to you local TD and demand that the practice of collecting pensions whilst still in receipt of a Dail salary be stopped immediately

Furthermore all pensions should not be more that the national average citizens’ pension

TD’s should not be financially better off as a result of payments from the taxpayers of this country, the people they are supposed to be serving

It’s time to get real and let these leaches know that the party is over,and they better get use to the idea!
