Mac the Knife, cut your pension
Madam -- Two particular articles in your paper last Sunday, September 30, caught my attention. One by Ray MacSharry, former Minister for Finance and the other by Michael McDowell, former Tanaiste.
When it comes to our ailing Irish economy, few people are better positioned than Ray MacSharry to articulate the 'cures' required to put the country back on the road to recovery. His article last Sunday is another example of some sensible measures the present Government might consider.
The introduction of his article states: "All payments from the exchequer must be means-tested". I agree with that.
