You really couldn't make this up, Fine Gael's Mr Whiplash otherwise known as Michael D'arcy Minister for Financial Services is coming down hard on a compensation culture which he says is clustered around the country. Minister D'arcy earlier this month was one of the junior ministers who asked for extra allowances to compensate themselves against the high cost of overnighting in Dublin.

He may well have a point that there are a few chancers out there, problem is that when it comes to ministerial office, there's a few chancers in there too.

A few months ago D'arcy wanted a referendum to protect the profits of insurers and to interfere with court decisions in relation to judgements. Now he is finger pointing at parts of the country where he says there are clusters.

According to himself honest people are trying it on. If a person is chancing their arm in overstating their case they're not honest, but sure what would a junior minister who overplayed his hand to Pascal know about honesty?

- Minister - Independent.ie

Donohoe t get more money - but councillors might - Independent.ie

Most settlements in relation to injury are agreed without reaching the court steps. Perhaps that happens as the insurer reckons they paid even more in the court of their peers?

Is your point that you don't know that staying in Dublin is expensive or that you don't think people should get expenses for business travel?

What has that got to do with compo culture?

My point is that Pascal sees a chancer when he sees one, unlike Minister Whiplash!

That point in no way comes out in your OP. Horribly written and you seem to have low understanding of the two issues you're incorrectly linking as being somehow relevant to each other.

Will Alan Farrell support this?

Great to know that there are those on this site who still are fire up by the worst of Varadkar's Communications unit!

Eh! The minister lives within an hours drive of Dublin. He is entitled to generous expenses as it is as both a TD and minister, He has a driver paid for by the state. He has a senior minister who is briefed by the same officials that the Junior has access to directly.
By the way the OP is spot on.

I wonder what FG TD Alan "Compo" Farrell will make of this?
