'Pain' that brings tears of laughter

I could not help but laugh at the idea that Brian Cowen and other ministers would "feel the pain" when they took a pay cut in the Budget. Cowen's pay is now 'only' €228,000 a year. Let him try living on my invalidity pension of €209 a week.

I do not smoke or drink as they are unnecessary expenses I neither need nor can afford.

Dick Roche needs to start living in the real world. Feel the pain, I ask you.
