Dail gold rush

•Well, our politicians and their pensions are in the papers again and, surely, the amounts of monies listed is nothing short of obscene. I have no problem with people retiring with modest/good pensions or even with very good pensions when properly earned -- but I have never come across situations where people can enjoy two pensions from the same job. Except in Irish politics.

Our beauties don't even have to wait until normal retirement age to reel in their golden eggs -- full ministerial pensions (where served) plus full TD pension.
