On Eamon Dumphy This morning.[Newstalk 11.00 am Sun 14//11//2010]
Trenchant talk about the necessity to seriously cut PS pensions, particularly at the higher level.
Will this govt. bite the bullet on this one or just go for the low hanging fruit?
Personally I hope they have the balls to take them on but will probably have to bring in some outside agency. The turkeys inside are unlikely to vote for the upcoming festive season.

Perhaps they should be focused on the additional provision being made to ensure our political masters are let go with the benefit of an enhanced parachute payment. At least most of the FF herd in the Dail can go back to their teaching jobs and really suck us dry. Past time to call a halt to the incredulous extra pension(s) severance payments and other greedy underhand deals these leeches have granted themselves over the years.

Nobody should have a pension > €50,000

Nobody should get their hands on their pension until they are 68 :)

That should help a little :)

The total cost of PS pension is now running at €129bn and increased by €9bn last year alone. This is absolute lunacy and it will take the IMF to impose some common sense.

The financial burden on the state of providing for the retiring citizens in public employment is spread across several sectors.

The largest sector with pension liabilities now is teachers (€30.9bn) followed by health (€24.3bn) and the civil service (€14.2bn).

Other public sectors with high occupational pension liabilities include the Gardaí (€8.9bn), the Defence Forces (€8.8bn), non-commercial state bodies (€7.6bn) and local authorities (€7.3bn).

I understand there are going to be a lot of mad welfare b@stards who have an opinion on everything,those who got everything for free and are still begrudging other consciencous members of society who do pay their way,why should they be punished yet again,so you can get a rise in your welfare benefits?and piss it up against a wall?is that it?
If i worked and paid hard into a pension i am not going to let some greedy shortsighted government take money out of my bank account.

Why do people when they get angry always assume that people that receive welfare drink and waste it up against a wall.

This is just bitter and twisted.

There are 429,000 people on the live register. Many dont even get to enjoy a few beers.

The sooner the IMF are in here the better.
No one here has the balls to shut down the gravy train that is the
"public service"
It is a joke and needs to be stopped so that the productive part
(albeit small) of this currently very disfunctional economy can try and repair
some of the damage done by mccreevy and bertie

A working teacher's pay was cut but not the pensions of retired teachers in the last budget.It says something of from where FF draw their support.No one should have a pension >50k unless they have paid for it. Do an actuarial calculation of what the pension should be taking into account the amount paid in by the employee plus an amount that would have been paid by a good private sector employer and start from there.Also the extra tax breaks for the elderly should be abolished.They got tax relief on the inputs.

Countries "IMF'd" generally emerge with stronger economies. But the IMF's thankless task meets with understandable whingeing from bloated governments and their overpaid employees,crony capitalists who rob banks and rig markets, and social welfare and government services recipients who experience service cuts from unaffordable levels of spending.

Just for information purposes - no retired teacher (with the possible exception of a small number of retired school principals) has a pension above €50K.

Middle classes always pay. OAPs always protected. They are the people that vote.

We will end up with the elite, the working classes and the unemployed.

I would take a look at the cost of housing scumbags all over ireland,their criminality,their FAILED reform and rehab*********,and how these welfare mothers,are more intersted in thier own lifestyle than that of their children and how they eventually end up in care of the state where the tax payer picks up the tab,and you won't see daddy paying any welfare for these young un's who grow up exactly the same way.
When the order of the day in the 1960's Fianna Fail like the mafia,keep em all sweet give em all council housing and welfare..
Look at the ROT across the pond we are now becoming no different!
