So Dermot Ahern is retiring from politics?
For those of you who don’t know who Dermot Ahern is, he is our Minister for Justice. His claim to fame is that he was part of the worst government in Irish history, but he will probably be remembered for introducing our infamous blasphemy law. In other words, I doubt there will be many tears shed.
Now apparently, when he retires, he will receive a little going away present from us, the Plain People of Ireland. It’s not much. A wee cheque for a mere €150,000.
Yup. The little cunt is getting quite a nice little golden handshake.
But that’s not all, Folks. Oh no. Not by a long chalk. We are also going to pay him a little pension. He is to receive a pension of €128,000 every fucking year.
Now I don’t know what the average industrial wage is at the moment, but it is somewhere around €32,000. So this little cretin is going to dump his fat arse on a fireside chair and cream in four times the average salary?
Times are tough here. We have mortgaged the country to the hilt and sold our sovereignty for a few pieces of silver, yet we apparently can still afford to pay the little shit €128,000 as a pension.
As usual, I am baffled.
Just what fucking planet are these people living on?
