… no advance notice given by tv3 …

Gerard Hughes, School of Business TCD http://www.tcd.ie/business/research/centres/pprg/index.php
Peter Mathews, FG TD Dublin South http://www.finegael.ie/our-people/tds/peter-mathews/
Catherine Murphy, Independent TD Kildare North http://www.catherinemurphy.ie/
Fionnan Sheahan, Political Editor Irish Independent http://www.independent.ie/opinion/columnists/fionnan-sheahan/

So as well as a slow site, folks, tv3 are slow too today. I haven’t the foggiest what’s on tonight as I haven’t been given any info from tv3, so I’ll have to fill in the details on the OP grid as we go along and I hear the broadcast. So it’s just one big surprise to me as well as you!

Subject is Pensions given to the political classes... Today saw former FF Ministers refuse to take a pay cut in their pensions. So why does the State favour the rich even in the midst of austerity?


Paper preview:

Ah now, a night kicking FF! That's more like it.

And I wish we could all agree that "guys" is a unisex term.

There was a list here the other day of them all, and there is many non ff'ers creaming it aswell, fg/lab will do nothing about this either as they want their fumble at the greasy till.

There should be no voluntary anything, noonan and kenny should show some leadership and tax the bejaysus out of any state pension over €60k.

Bertie would definitely challenge that "legitimate expectation" thing. The man clearly has no shame, and no reputation to lose.
