It’s a €1.2m disgrace
Sir -- I refer to the front page report on the Sunday Independent (9/5/10) about the Presidents €1.2m allowance over the past four years for dinners, foreign travel and hotels etc.
This is disgraceful, with our country in such a bad state and people put to the pin of their collar trying to survive. Only last December our government took money from the blind and disabled and carers. How low can they stoop?
I support Joan Burton, who called on Mrs McAleese to show leadership and take a more substantial cut in her income.
