What craziness…


When I lived here in Irelnd 20 years ago, I should have got a civil service job, as a teacher. Why? The pension, stupid.

The man who will be the Irish prime minister after the election next week was for some years a school teacher. He retired from that job to enter politics.

He is now entitled to a lump sum of 100,000 Euro pension. The pension is apparently still accruing. Then there is his pension which he is accrung for being a member of parliament and a cabinet minister!

He has had the political nous to turn down the 100 g’s since the next election is Friday. Now you understand why the rest of Europe had to bail out Ireland.

Irresponsibility and the mistaken notion that the Celtic Tiger would continue forever; I live here. the Tiger is officially morto.  

Poor Ireland.
