Ahern ‘Gifts’ Pension To The State

Bertie drops his pension back…until he actually retires that is

Disgraced former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern has today magnanimously gifted his pension of some €83,426 per year to the State in a show of solidarity with the masses of people who are now living with the consequences of his actions.

Ahern, who famously led the MaFFianna Fail crime family to the purchase of three historic election victories, is the highest profile sitting TD who is also recipient of a pension while not yet actively retired to relinquish his lordly stipend for the good of the people.

Members from all sides of the political spectrum, apart from SInn Fein (who have never actually qualified for a pension), have been moving to distance themselves from the practice of leeching a number of salaries from the cash strapped exchequer. Several of the begrudgingly generous TDs have pointed out that the pensions that they have temporarily stopped drawing down were in practice so tiny as to make little or no difference to economy.

Strange it took them so long to give up such a pittance really…
