Ceann Comhairle John O’Donoghue on a junket to discuss poverty last year cost the taxpayer over €3,000.Just image how many people could feed themselves ?
Ironically, he and the cross-party delegation of senators and TDs were all attending a five-day conference in Cape Town with poverty as its core theme.
It is the latest revelation of a of the lavish expense claims clocked up by Mr O’Donoghue
Today I also heard on the Pat Kenny radio show George lee and another politician from the Government side discuss the NAMA Toxic Bank
You must just look at this situation
Here we have a radio talk show master earning 850.000,00 Euro almost 5 times the salary of the most powerful man in the world and a political system set up to help themselves get rich while the ordinary people that they represent get fleeced no matter who they vote for !
Mr O donoghue is not alone in having airs and graces above his station .there is no political parity advocating a radical shake up of the Merks and Perks and screw them for all I can get mentality .This is quite easily seen from the lists published yesterday in the Irish independent newspaper of the TD’s and Senators expenses
The facts are simple 90% of the TD’s in the Dail are there for themselves and if you think any different you deserve to have them suck you dry along with their social elite buddies!
