Superannuated

• I'm shocked but not surprised to see yet another stealth tax by the Government -- this time on 115,000 pensioners who have their own as well as the state pension.

Why don't the revenue commissioners go after all the big tax evaders instead of vulnerable and soft targets like the pensioners? Not that the pensioners will be pushovers -- as they showed a few years ago when they resisted the Government's attack on their medical cards.
