TDs don't deserve any pension at all

Dermot Ahern is to walk away with more than €300,000 and a pension of €129,000 a year for life. Add to that all the other 'retiring' leeches and the bill will run into millions. This at a time when the Government is cutting the minimum wage and about to foist a vicious Budget on the country.

Why is it that in Ireland these disgusting TDs and senators who have all been a part of the political system when the country was bankrupted feel that they are entitled to take any money from the taxpayer? They deserve nothing.

They have destroyed the country, they have failed on a massive scale and they have saddled the children of Ireland with debts that will probably take generations to pay back.
