He took office in May 2008. If he holds office until April 2011 i.e. a three year term, he will be entitled to a full Taoiseach’s pension of around €100,000 and a TD pension of around €53,000 per year. Could this be one of the reasons that the fat old useless sh1t is hanging onto office??

Yes. And I like your description of him - you were too kind.

Yes he, like all of his party are that venal.

If Labour and Fine Gale have any balls they will introduce legislation to bar anyone under the age of 65 from receiving a "Political Pension".

Let's see just how corrupt they are?

Once you get into power, you hold onto it at all costs.

Anyway, it's not just the Taoiseach, it's the entire Dail.

the next government will have no choice but to take a hatchet to current cabinet, td's and senior civil servants pensions, nevermind any AG ************************************************ about you can't do this and you can do that, if the full facts are laid before the people and they decide in a referendum that these people are responsible for wrecking the country,so be it.

All parties canvassing for the next election must promise to stop this pension scandal.No pension until over 66. Also if 40 FF TDs loose their seats they will all get a ridiculous golden parachute.Does anyone out there know how much this might approximate to .This must also go.

It doesn`t matter what pension Ahern & BIFFO have.

The people now see them as traitors and incompetents.

All the money in the world will not regain for them or their families any RESPECT. They will be shouted at and abused every time they are seen in PUBLIC.

If normal people can only receive the pension at 65 it should be the same for FFearless Leader and the rest of them.

From the Indo..

Mr Ahern will be able to retire with a total package worth €308,000 -- thanks to a legislative move made by former Finance Minister Charlie McCreevy.

Mr Ahern (55) is expected to receive a ministerial pension worth almost €75,000 per year, a TD's pension worth around €54,000 per year, as well as a pension lump sum of around €162,000 and a termination lump sum of €17,000. The total package is worth around €308,000 over the next year.
