Dr Justin Corfield compares child benefit paid in Ireland and that in the UK (Letters, October 7).
Dr Corfield should know that the cost of living in Ireland is about twice that of the UK.
Can he make some extra room and bring in all the remaining members of Fianna Fail -- the party with no shame -- to join him?
If they really squeezed tight they could manage room for the Greens. Then would they please close the door behind them?
Namely a toll sticker in the vehicle's windscreen, with on the spot fines for those on a motorway without the sticker.
If we can adapt to the "honour system" used on the Luas in Dublin, then I am sure that such an idea could work on the roads.
As a result, people were in power too long and thought themselves untouchable.
The results are all around us with the IMF knocking at the door.
