Eamon Gilmore deserves an Oscar for his "anger". He's on €98,000 in a public job and his wife, who made €525,000 selling two acres to a school, earns circa €140,000 in a public job. Meanwhile, he's topping the opinion polls with no discernable policies. What has he to be angry about?
- WE hear a lot of talk from state-funded media stars such as Marian Finucane, Pat Kenny, Ryan Tubridy and Joe Duffy about how we might get the country out of the mess.
Imagine if they were to lead the way in the public sector and say they will only take a salary of €150,000 per year. That would be patriotic.
