'Absentee' TDs' stash should be targeted

Now that the Government is going to reduce the salaries of judges and top civil servants in semi-state bodies, isn't it time they went after the absentee TDs?
I speak of those TDs who deserted this country before the last election; these who took the money and ran; those who are not feeling the financial misery the rest of us are; those who refused to allow bonuses to AIB employees but took huge bonuses for themselves before they fled; those who receive huge pensions before reaching pension age; those hypocrites who are stealing from the State; those who are worse than any absentee landlords.
Isn't it time to right this injustice? Retrieve the bonus -- and no pension until they reach pension age.
