The mainstream media in general seems more concerned with who gets an extra fiver than they do with the fact that this is essentially a coalition budget between Fianna Gael and Fine Fáil. (Not a typo)
Whatever about the Lansdowne Road Agreement I cannot wrap my head around the fact that nobody is talking about a protest march surrounding the fact that the politicians are getting a pay rise. Here at FPP, not only do we think they are morally obliged to waive it, no TD who supports it should receive any political capital for doing so. It’s like showing up to work on time…you shouldn’t get credit for something that everyone expects of you.
We haven’t been posting as often of late. We hope to get back to our post-a-day schedule soon.
