    Default Is Eamon Gilmore leading by example?

    With continuous talk of austerity, tightening our belts, the troika, cut backs and living within our means that will surely take centre stage even more in debates and discussions with a fast approaching budget, I am reminded by what Eamon Gilmore wrote a few weeks ago.

    Eamon Gilmore October 2012.
    As Ireland's recent history shows, if you don't control your public finances, you don't control your destiny.
    Okay so we need to do all of the above and more in order to get our public finances in order.

    So take the salary pay caps for advisers at circa 90,000.

    Gilmore's advisers.
    Mark Garret salary (168,000 euro per annum) 90% above limit.
    Colm O Reardon salary (155,000 euro per annum) 70% above limit.
    Jean O'Mahoney salary (80,000 euro per annum)

    And then two weeks ago he hired another one.
    Niamh Sweeney salary (80,000)
    http://www.google.ie/url?sa=t&rct=j&...6Nf2VNNjclp-Gg

    That is nearly a whopping 500,000 euro per annum to the state with those four advisers.

    In June 2012, the Irish Examiner reported that Mr Gilmore’s senior press adviser and deputy government press secretary, Cathy Madden, saw her salary rise by €2,941 to €99,236.

    Does Gilmore think that pay rises, additional advisers to the state pay roll and exceeding the pay cap of advisers of between 70% and 90% will help control Ireland's finances?

    I remember Colm O Reardon's brother being asked on TG4 news many months ago why pay caps were breached. Silence from a usually vocal Aodhain.

    Mr Gilmore is no leader.

    And not only are the salary caps being breached but does the new hiring prohibition not apply to Gilmore as well? To get around the cap, he could just employ twice as many people?

    Cannot really defend the indefensible even if it's your brother earning
    way above the pay cap.

    If we had a semi-decent mainstream media the above vulgar salaries would be highlighted. I seriously think if some political party our grouping really highlighted the above to the masses, we would see change in this flawed State.
