    Afaik the Christmas bonus only went to the long term unemployed and pensioners, how about using this money to help the previously self employed instead of the self entitled.

    I have worked all my life

    and I never ever recived a Christmas bonus,

    I dont see why those on Social welfare stirred up by Sinn Fein feel they are entitled to

    it.

    Some €250million I think is the cost of the Christmas 100% bonus.

    I believe it was a bad idea to do away with it, They people who received that money would have it spent the next day, Money in circulation, money in locality
    Money gone back to the government in taxes, but then who would expect Lenihan to do something intelligent in 2 years of failure.

    A lot of poor children and old people are being deprived of a little happiness at christmas - and all to bail out bankrupt criminals who are being supplied with salaries of up to 200,000 euro out of the taxpayers pocket.
