Madam -- Is there any way that we, the poor people of Ireland, can find out if our beloved ministers, TDs, senators and councillors have all paid the household tax? On all their properties? If we plead poverty when the 'Hogeens' come to intimidate us at our doors, will we get any sympathy? Will the 'Hogeens' have weapons? Will they have big, burly, bouncer-types waiting at the gate in case of trouble at the door? Will we have to barricade ourselves into our homes and peep through the curtains every time the doorbell rings? Quick, hide, it's the 'Hogeens'.
