• I read this week that our former Taoiseach and 'leader' Bertie Ahern will from now on have to fork out for his own mobile phone expenses (Irish Independent, December 6), which won't be easy for a man who doesn't like to carry cash on his person.

To be honest, the story made me laugh, smile and gasp at the same time when one considers the amount he was also claiming for secretarial expenses on top of the free mobile.

This former perk is now, according to St Enda Kenny, a luxury the taxpayer can no longer afford.
