you said it token is the word

pathetic is word in relation to the cuts the buffoons have taken who got us here

cowen/ahern/ahern/coughlan/killeen/dempsey (apologies to those i have forgotten)

put the notion of their property rights to the people and stop hiding behind the legal opinions of faceless bureaucrats (who are hardly going to give advise which may impact on their own pensions)

at a minimum publish the legal advice

Antone who persists in working will have to face pay cuts, increased hours & increased tax going forward...this has to happen to Ensure the Vunerable on social welfare will not take any cuts on their social welfare ...this will benefit the hospitality sector as only those on social welfare can afford to socialise in particular those living in social housing with no mortgages etc..and have medical card, back to school allowance etc.....
basically anyone with a few kids must be off their head working in this country....didtch the mortgage get a place to rent paid for by the state in a half decent area..draw the dole...do an odd day here and there ...happy days....

GPs and lawyers hopefully.
My GP dropped his charges from €60 to €50, not brilliant but a start nonetheless. Don't know much about lawyers fees thankfully, would rather have to see a doctor!

Thats a good drop in fairness. But from a high level.

I am unsure why the bank pay bill has to only drop by 10% compared to much higher figures in other areas funded by the state.

Van sales should be doing well - in anticipation of opportunities to bring in booze from the north - as soon as the clowns impose even more tax on it down here.

Because they are private sector wealth creators and if the salary is dropped any more they will all leave to magic bankland where bonuses flow freely and the most lending based on no actual deposits makes you governor of the department of private sector bullsh1t.

In France, where GP care is private, their fee is capped at 21 euro, of which, the state refunds 19 euro.

In Ireland we cap the income of taxi drivers instead.

Semi states should be cut by an average of 14%, OAP cut by 5% and all other welfare cut by 5% next.

They were saying on the RTE that average bank workers pay has risen by 4% since the BANKING crash.
