And now for the rest of them…

Maire Geoghegan-Quinn has relented and given up her pensions from the state until she has finished her term of office as a European Commissioner. So can we now name all the male politicians who are taking TD’s and Ministerial pensions whilst under the age of 66 and employed and ensure that they too ‘donate’ these back to the state?

Bertie Ahern I’m looking at you for starters. And lets have the rest of them. No waiting around until the next Dáil term for it. If it’s good enough for MGQ (well under extreme duress when nearly nobody else was doing it) the rest of them can do likewise now. All those teachers who are TD’s for more than one term should likewise submit their resignations. They can compete for jobs on the open market like everyone else if they lose their seats. Nobody forced them to run for the Dáil.
