Gravy train is still firmly on track

Let me get this straight. We are borrowing billions of euro from the IMF and the EU to pay for your ministerial severance packages and pensions, yet you will still be able to work and make a living. And you expect us to vote for you and your political party.

Absolutely incredible and the only reason you aren't being held to account is that some of the opposition leaders are in receipt of these benefits too.

It's funny because, in the next two weeks, if that fact doesn't turn into a political landmine, then I don't know what will; and if you haven't looked to square that away in advance of it blowing up in your faces then you are thicker than two short planks. Good luck to you. . .
