Tony O’Brien, who previously earned €165,000 as a health official, before taking over as Health Service Executive director general designate recently, is to be paid €195,000.
Asked if it sent out the wrong message when he is overseeing €130m in health cuts, affecting many elderly and the disabled, Mr O’Brien said the salary figure was a matter for the Government and it was less than his predecessor earned.
He was speaking as Dr Reilly insisted the €700m in cuts that will be needed in the health service next year…….full article at source: http://www.independent.ie/national-news/hse-chief-overseeing-130m-cutbacks-defends-pay-hike-3216507.html
This is another well placed pal is been given a lottery salary and perks while the ordinary Joe is been fleeced, stripped of essential home care services and don’t mention A&E services .This is a blatant example of the out of touch politicians and their pals as they continue to dismantle the hard won health services every Irish citizen at one stage was entitled too . Now it is all about the haves and have not’s. Greed is alive and well and if you are with the “in” crowd you will be looked after and to hell with the rest of us. This Government is looking after its own insider pals and this will not be the last example I fear! As long as idiots continue to vote in such brazen gangster politicians they will continue to feather their own nests and that of their insider pals.
The fun hasnt even started just wait for the water charges and the increased household charge(Irish poll tax) are forced through .I wonder who is going to get the top job in these new Quangos ?more that likely more pals of the gangsters in Government!
On that note Big Phil has this message for you lads!
Wake up Ireland, Get up off your knees and rid ourselves of the political élite who have robbed us of our country and whose greed has no bounds!
