    Default The raiding of the state coffers by former Fianna Fáil ministers. They haven't gone away y'kow.

    As the state comes dipping into your pockets for yet more this week it is nice to know that the money is being spent wisely.

    Nearly 2 million euros has been paid out to former FF (and GP) politicians in the past two years. People like Mary Hanafin (sacked by her employers in DL) received over €50,000 for the privilege.

    John McGuinness - forever complaining about small incremental increases for the lowest paid in the public service - received over €61,300. Hypocrite.

    What is your favourite payment?

    Mary Hanafin (51k+).... Still can't get my head around the fact that she brought her Mam into the Dail.... The mother took a tumble and ended up suing the state for damages....

    Looks like the Hanifins are still screwing the system.
    You'll never go broke appealing to the lowest common denominator.

    It is sickening, considering the mess they made of the country. Unfortunately the system dosen't make a distinction between service and outright treason. I wish it did and that Cowen and Ahern could be retrospectively stripped of all their ill-deserved entitlements.

    "On 22 April 2009 he was appointed Minister of State at the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment with special responsibility for Labour Affairs. On 23 March 2010, following a cabinet reshuffle, responsibility for Public Service Transformation was added to his role."

    Appointed 2009..............severance in 2011 of nearly €34,000

    Shower of ***** politicians.
