Life savers and wasters

The following text message was received during a discussion on the economy and banking crisis on an RTE programme last week.

I’m a nurse and my staff and I saved two lives today. I’m 52, funded my Masters myself and my take home pay is just over €1,300 per fortnight.

Compare this to the following wasters.

Mary Coughlan (45): Received a lump sum of almost €240,000 and an annual pension of over €140,000.

Paul Gogarty (42): Received lump sum of more than €110,000 and an annual pension of over €20,000. Gogarty served just eight years as a backbencher.

Sean Haughey (49): Lump sum of almost €240,000 and an annual pension of almost €72,000.

These payments and the millions paid out to the other traitors who have destroyed our country are nothing less than obscene.

  1. Ah yes! To be made compulsorily redundant at the age of 45 (Coughlan) is certainly made sweeter by an income of €140,000 for life.

  2. Agreed on the politicians and all due respects to the 52 year old. I dont know what their skill is but €1,300 net fortnightly works out at about €50,000 per annum. People make out in ireland theyre on the breadline at €50k and its offensive to the rest of Europe. Lets not forget Consultants in Germany are on little more than that.

  3. Get your facts straight.

    a) You are incorrect. I have not received such a lump sum as you describe, nor am I in receipt of a pension, although all TDs and Senators and civil servants that they are linked to will receive monies based on years of service and will qualify for a pension if they have more than three years’ service.

    b) I am not a traitor.

    c) If you say that I am often enough then you will ironically earn me a large lump sum, but it is from your bank account it will come!
