FORMER politicians who win back their Dail seats will be able to re-enter a gold-plated pension scheme. Public Expenditure Minister Brendan Howlin has signed a new order that will see all new public servants and new politicians getting much-reduced pensions -- but he made an exception for returning politicians.
The brass neck of the f.en pygmy. I think that he is thinking of all his fellow Labour politicians, who will lose their seats, and then regain them, as the Irish public has a notorious short memory. I await the reasoning, and the political support that he will receive off some of the posters on this site.......I'm sure that they will be along soon
TDs who regain seat will enjoy 'golden' pension - National News - Independent.ie
