Jim Higgins is a total disgrace
THE quote from Jim Higgins in the article "It's all s***e: MEP rounds on critics of 'study break" (Irish Independent, October 15) is disgraceful.
He said: "I haven't a clue what star it is. All I know is that it's a very good hotel, the accommodation is wonderful, the food is lovely. For people who work so hard, we're entitled to that. You don't expect us to stay in B&Bs, do you?"
How is that trip justified at all? How can the European People's Party (EPP) allow these things to continue when every country is struggling?
