Government far too top-heavy

I AGREE with Leo Varadkar about corrupt officials and bad bankers, but I would also say that we have far too many public representatives for the size of the country.

Greater Manchester, which has a population of almost three million people, has just 27 MPs.

Our population is closer to five million and we have no less than 166 TDs, not to mention senators.
