Boucher's top-up is disgraceful

ATTEMPTS to justify Richie Boucher's enormous pension top-up are disgraceful. His salary is way above the recommended cap of €500,000 supposedly imposed by the Finance Minister.
There is a reluctance from this government to challenge the banking hierarchy. The same minister had no hesitation to impose cuts to my disability pension. It's time for politicians and bankers alike to understand that the Celtic Tiger is dead.
Also, it is a bit hypocritical for Eamon O Cuiv to request that Mr Boucher forego the pension funding when you see ministers using legal loopholes to prevent the loss of their own.
