SOMETHING does not add up about the garda sergeant whose wife has written to Cabinet members claiming the family can't feed its children.
The sergeant earns €75,000 a year when overtime and allowances are taken into account.
But his wife has written to politicians claiming the family has just €109 left a week after income tax, the universal social charge, pension, health insurance, mortgage and utility deductions have been taken out of the pay packet.
