Bruton's stand

• John Bruton has refused to return any of his Irish pension unless he is made to by a change in law, as reported in your paper.

However, it's not just his Irish pension that is beyond disgusting -- it's that, in addition to the €148,000 the Irish taxpayer provides, he also receives an EU pension.

Let's not forget any payment he may receive for his role at the IFSC, plus the income from speaking engagements, board appointments, and what he gets for positions such as being a Visiting Fellow of the European Institute at the London School of Economics.
