On the frontline

Sir -- Here is a reminder to our brave politicians who walk proudly behind their leaders to deny members of the gardai a justified wage for doing a thankless job.

Ask yourselves, who did you call into Portlaoise Prison when the very safety of the State was threatened? Who saves you, when you are threatened? And remember: gardai have no negotiating rights at pay talks and must take what they are given.

They go to work not knowing what circumstances they are likely to face or if they will be seriously injured.
