Did I miss something, or are there no pay cuts for politicians in the 4-year plan?
25 November, 2010
Is it greed, or is it stupidity? Both probably.
Whatever the chances are of getting public buy-in to the harsh realities of the 4-year plan, they are considerably reduced by the failure of Cowen et al to lead from the front and cut their own (still) excessive pay. Not to mention the ridiculously inflated pay of semi-state chief executives. And medical consultants. And lawyers. And senior civil servants.
These things matter.
Useless gobshites indeed. They’re not smart enough even to know how to save their own skins.
