Re: Re: cork docklands
TDs now make over â‚¬100k p.a., excluding expenses etc. Why in the hell would we make extra provision for them such as holding their jobs etc? Granted a Dail career can be short, if a TD cocks up, but so can a career in medicine if you cock that up. Every job has consequences, the whole point of political representation is that there are consequences to your actions to meet or fail your constituency expectations. The Irish system even goes so far as to make lump sum payments to TDs if they fail to be reelected! That’s before we get started on the pension….
Granted, the situation is different for coucillors, but this topic started about those in government.
