The figures speak for thenselves alright. As a amtter of interest, though, would it be fair to factor in the cost of the stay in the White House and Camp David, and No 10 and Chequers, and the French presidents residences? I agree totally that he is overpaid. What is the total pay packet of local TDs and Senators, everything taken into account. How many of them give value for money? I saw one senator on the Late Late a couple of weeks ago who was the smuggest person imaginable. He had been appointed by somebody or other and had made no contribution to the country before or since. Jackie Healy Raye was on local radio last week, huffing and puffing about how he earned every 'lasht penny' of a salry that approached €200 grand. Good man Jackobite for highlighting the issue. This forum provides the basis for some good questions for the canvassers already on the hoof.
