    While we're at it, we should abolish all student grants and make them pay the full price of their education.
    Oh, and we should slash the amount of infrastructural funding Kerry receives due to John O'Donoghue's corruption to nothing. Those boggers have had way too much already.

    You might want to think that the people whose pittance you'd like to rob were the same people paying horrendous levels of income tax in the 70s and 80s so that you could enjoy your Celtic Tiger cub existence.
    I hope when you are old that your relatives are as selfish as you. Then they'll throw you in a nusring home where foreign staff will abuse you, while they sell your home.

    Is this a YFG policy proposal for the caring coalition? Or a Young Tory posting via a time warp from the 19th Century? If the latter here's some bad news in advance.... Attlee will make you cry.

    Has tralee1 alluded to membership of YFG somewhere?

    I'm not trying to defend YFG, or tralee1. I'd just like to know if these types of views are common currency in YFG.

    Yeah, he's outed himself as an FG member before.

    doesn't surprise me that it comes from a FGer their ancestors in Cna G cut a shilling off the old age pension under Cosgrave and Ernst Blyth

    The mind boggles at the mentality of the above poster.
    Another good reason why FG should never, ever get into power again.
    Sure why not let 14 year olds buy bottles of smirnoff ice while we're at it?

    There might have been financial imperatives in the wake of the war of independence and a republican inspired civil war.
    Anyway there's a whole lot more to Ernest Blyth than just cutting the pension.

    Interesting link. I wonder was he aware of Collins activities regarding the six counties during the Civil War, and if so did he approve?

    Oaps need to take a hit like everybody else, The oap should be cut 7% and the free tv licence should be abolished.
