Greens jump on the FF gravy train

I NOTE with interest the Green Party's ministerial rotation policy. I assume this bizarre scheme will result in the Irish taxpayer paying an additional ministerial pension simply because the Greens think someone else should get a go at a big job. If so, I, as an Irish taxpayer vehemently object.

I'm not privileged enough to have an arrangement at my place of work which allows me to rotate with any of my seniors in order to gain additional lifelong benefits. However, it will be a nice little earner for the new minister and shows that the Greens are basically more Fianna Fail than Fianna Fail.
