Political beggars

• Charlie Weston's report on TDs and senators signing a petition asking Ulster Bank to defer plans to fleece its customers (Irish Independent, July 12) is truly shocking.

More than 100 members of the Oireachtas, from all political parties, disgracefully demeaned themselves and the offices they hold by signing this shameful, begging letter.

The people have entrusted them with the power to draft leglisation and pass laws.
