No recession for TD's as they get pay rise

ALL of our TDs will earn a basic take-home salary of at least €100,000 for the first time from today.

The boost to their earnings comes as Taoiseach Brian Cowen this week attempts to kickstart the collapsed pay talks.

The job of every TD is now officially in the six-figure bracket as the terms of a national wage increase kick in for workers across the country.

The 2.5pc increase is the final tranche of a pay rise agreed under the national partnership agreement, which has yet to be replaced by a new wage deal.

It's good to know these people have their priorities straight.

That's the problem with our politicians, they look after themselves while our country goes to pot.
