    How much has your TD been paid? full details on the link here!

    Curious if you are getting your taxpayers money worth from your TD/Minister?

    This helpful link form of all things the "Irish" Mirror will help you find exactly how much they are being paid, personally it helps to highlight what a waste of money is being looted by many tax sucking political parasites in my local area who have summarily failed to represent the electorate. What about your area?

    Please enjoy!

    Click on the link and half way down the page you can input your TD's name and find out how much they are costing you!

    30 or 40 million perhaps out of 50 billion in current expenditure. Less than 1%?

    It doesn't seem to bother many TDs that they make more in 'expenses' than most people earn.

    Most people can't claim as an expense traveling to and from your place of work, in fact, very many pay for this 'privilege'!

    Most people don't get a subsidized bar at work..

    But hey we're all taking the pain....

    Doesn't seem to be a breakdown in relation to where in the country the politician resides. There's a big difference in expenses I'd have thought if you're commuting long distances.

    So ?
    Just let it go so?

    Do the government take that same approach to someone on the dole, off mowing lawns to make a few extra quid?
    Do they hell.

    Thanks for the link, venerial. But I had to laugh at the following quotation:-

    "The Mandate union, said the shocking figures highlight a growing gap between Ireland’s richest and poorest. Communications officer David Gibney added: “There’s far too big a margin between the wealthiest and the poorest in our society and steps need to be taken by the political establishment to close that gap, whether it’s through taxation or an increase in the minimum wage.”

    I wonder whether Dave Gibney mentioned how much he was being paid?

    Or indeed how much Mandate's Chief Muppet John Douglas* trousers every year in pay and expenses. Because Douglas consistently refuses to tell the media - and his members - how much moolah he's earning every year.

    (*The same John Douglas who has so little to do in the day job that he spends much of his time acting the gom for the risible "Right to Water" campaign.)
