    Default Varadkar defends TDs Pay

    The transport minister has defended the pay that he and his fellow politicians are on. He states that they have taken their fair share of cuts.

    Personally I know of no other group that earns so much for doing so little. What with the number of days they work p.a in comparison to the rest of the country. Then there is always what they earn compared to their counterparts in the EU and elsewhere.

    Somebody would need to wipe that smug look off his lardy face.

    That's exactly what I thought. How many times has he mouthed off in the last 22 months without his mouth engaging with his brain?

    I can never understand why any politician makes any comment on their pay. It's always going to come off badly.

    What's his problem? Compulsive honesty? Total disconnect from how the people are thinking? Failure to understand context? Or just downright bloody stupidity?

    He always had a little foot in mouth difficulty. In any event, it's accepted that if the higher public service are cut in Croke Park, the politicians will be too. Rabitte said as much the other day.
    "......... we must sometimes listen to those who, consumed with zeal, have scant judgment or balance. To such ones the modern world is nothing but betrayal and ruin.........We feel bound to disagree with these prophets of doom who are forever forecasting calamity -- as though the world's end were imminent."
