Pension pain

Dear Taoiseach, I am writing to you to express my utter disappointment in your lack of backbone and your clear U-turn on your promise to end the cronyism that put our wonderful country in the dire situation it faces on a daily basis.

I feel physically sick when I pick up the newspaper and listen to the radio and hear that people are going without heat, food and medical attention, in what can only be classed as an attempt to further line the pockets of the rich in our society.

You have promised to end this behaviour. Yet we see further cuts to the most vulnerable of our society -- those who helped your generation through some of the most difficult times -- and you reward them by taking away their basics rights of warmth, nourishment and basic healthcare.
