I feel your pain, haven't been off on a holiday since 2004.I have a weeks holiday next week but i have some cash into hand painting work to do for the week so i can afford the tank of heating oil that's way overdue. If only i had the time or money to go on a holiday.
"The motion, proposed by the Government, was passed without objection from the Opposition."
The Troika are concerned about three things only. The return of their investment, the profit on that investment, and subjugation.
with no opposition I might add
And I'm sure you've never taken a holiday ever.
They have also gone very quiet on some of their main initial issues, legal reform/costs, professional costs, red tape.......the troika have clearly been nobbled, lets screw the little people.....our senior civil servants clearly know their game, it's not that they are useless,they are just working for somebody other than the irish people.
They've increased the amount of days the Dail sits by a lot. I can't think of the exact figure.I thought FG were going to do politics different? How long are they back from the summer break. It's gas that teachers pay, allowances and holidays are in the firing line, when politicans have near or the same level of holidays and bigger allowances!
Yeah right, that is why they all go missing for the summer, and weekends?More Hot air by our resident p.ie wafflers.
Every politican has to vote their holidays (or time away from Dail to be more acurate) and this would be agreed by the whips beforehand. A senior politican generally has little to no time off and as seen on Sunday like a lot of top Civil services will work 7 days a week.
It is disgusting and totally gives the lie to what the 'troika' and the government are actually up to. It matters not one jot whether bringing TDs salaries down to average industrial wage will, on its own, save the economy. It's the principle of the thing - Noonan, Gilmore et al routinely play the nauseating green jersey card but will not wear that jersey themselves. The apply their 'tough' decisions to the most defenceless and brazenly sit out their own lavish salaries and expenses. Forget Marx and all of that. Let's have a revolution to restore plain, ordinary decency and common sense.
