Transition easing.

Very humane.

Bit like quantitative easing on a personal scale.


"The aim of this system is to ease their return to the labour market, to maintain their independence after their time as commissioner," European Commission spokesman Michael Mann

Very wise. We wouldn't want then cast adrift penniless, easy pickings for corporate vultures waving wads of cash ready to plug a memory stick into their brains and hit the copy button would we?

From that blog:



That's over €127k per year in Irish pensions alone, plus the EU money.
It really is time that no one is paid a State pension along with any salary or fees etc from the State or EU. McCreevy's State pensions should be reduced by the amount of any payment from the EU.

He worked hard for that money. And it only takes 3 taxpayers at the average industrial wage paying all their taxes for a year to pay his pension.

Frankly, after the service he did the nation, it's the least we can do.
Brilliant satire. One makes one think that one misjudged one.
