Burton displays kite-flying skills
Madam -- Joan Burton reveals what she really thinks of the IMF (Sunday Independent, July 22, 2012).
The closure of the Dail and the distinctly autumnal weather today heralds the arrival of another annual phenomenon, kite-flying!
Joan Burton talks of taxing child benefit for individuals earning more than €100,000, despite the fact that she is not actually the current Minister of Finance. Ms Burton is only too aware that this particular kite will not even get off the ground.
