Marian's pay . . . Nepotism . . . Expenses cheating
I would like to nominate Marian Finucane for the position of next President of Ireland.
Hopefully she would do a good job, but more importantly the taxpayer would be in a position to indirectly save €250,000 a year as a result of her switch from RTE to Aras an Uachtarain.
This money could be left in the pockets of the TV licence-fee payers who would not have to face another licence-fee hike in order to cover her astronomical RTE salary.
