Apparently while being interviewed on local radio this morning, former goverment minister Mary O'Rourke has said that she is looking at the option of standing down at the next General Election. Hardly surprising as he's 73.
It has come to our attention that some users may have been "banned" when they tried to change their passwords after the site was hacked due to a glitch in the old vBulletin software. This would have occurred around the end of February and does not apply after the site was converted to Xenforo.

Apparently, after Lenihan's changes at the last budget, sitting TD's will not be able to draw a Ministerial/Taoiseach's pension in the next Dail.
I do not think any FFer can retire at this election and expect their seat to be gifted to the next generation. There was a particular backlash against FF son/daughter candidates of TD's in the last locals.Is her Son ready to inherit the seat and join his cousins in the Big House?

i don't actually agree with that DCon.... Know where you're coming from but many old codgers are well able to work past 65 and in some cases I've seen people retire at 65 and have nothing to do except wait for dying.Who will talk $hite on the radio in her absence?
Politicians should have to retire at 65. No point having old codgers in there based on past favours handed out to their constituents
I assume this is the guyWhat's the story with the son--is he another thundering gobsh*** he seems not to have registered on the Socratic radar.
tranlsated as Me Mammy is Mary.I come from a family with strong political roots and a track record of delivering for this constituency. All my life I have lived in a political world.
