Cut pensions for departing TDs

It was with astonishment that I read of the levels of payouts to be received by our outgoing TDs, ministers and junior ministers.

Most will never have to work again and can live on these golden pensions.

The Government brought in emergency measures in the Budget to take additional taxes from ordinary workers and has reduced payments to professionals.

Why not bring in emergency measures to cut these payments?

It's just plain wrong.
