ESB workers only look after No 1

The shocking revelation that all ESB staff enjoy a 55pc discount on their electricity bill neatly sums up how utterly rotten this society can be.

This group of workers have shamelessly received pay rises during our national emergency and help cut off power to people devastated by the economic catastrophe that has been visited on us.

The uniquely Irish reason for not challenging this group of state workers is that they literally have the power to blackmail our government. When it comes to our ESB workers, we cower away and run the white flag up the flagpole at the first opportunity whenever they threaten to subvert the State by interfering in our power supply, should their terms and conditions be troubled in any way. So much for national solidarity.
