No more reason needed to destroy the system

Here’s why the current political system needs to be destroyed

Since the last general election in 2007, over €18m has been paid out to 166 TDs in expenses and allowances on top of their basic salaries of €106,500, the country’s 60 senators claimed a further €5.6m.

Ceann Comhairle John O’Donoghue, who chairs the body that oversees expenses, claimed almost €330,000 since his appointment as Dail chief.
