Game over

l I say well done Brendan Howlin. Keep all the perks for the public service in place and let the old-age pensioners pay for everything.

After all, they will be dead in a few years, whereas the public servants will always be there to vote for you and keep you in your cushy job.

Always get your priorities right!

l Final score in the great Public Service Allowance game: Unions, 800; Howlin, 1.

Union spokesman sick as a parrot over failure to keep clean sheet. Howlin claims moral victory.
