Path to political redemption
Sir -- The letter from a reader relating her brush with the modern-day glimmerman, who was threatening to cut off power to her home, was harrowing.
Elsewhere you report on four retiring TDs who will share a €1.1m bonanza on their retirement. Perhaps they will forgo these payments and set up a fund to help those struggling to keep power on in their homes over the winter. Politicians might reflect on the fact that redemption can be attained through self-sacrifice.
