Cassidy pay an insult to struggling public

Reports carried in the Irish independent (April 29) that the likes of outgoing senator Donnie Cassidy will receive huge handouts and pensions are very disturbing. The new government must realise that so long as people continue to receive bloated pensions, which are paid out prior to legal pensionable age, the continued burden being placed on the rest of us, and particularly those on low incomes, will remain unacceptable. We were promised "change".
