Niall Collins Calls for a Referendum on Judges’ Pay
“This group of elite untouchables should be subjected to the regular procedures administering the pay of higher civil servants. In the modern day being protected by the Constitution is simply not good enough given that many thousands of people and their families are suffering falling incomes and job losses.”
“I feel with the forthcoming Lisbon 2 Referendum we have an early opportunity to address this issue through a vote of the people. Many of the working practices of the Courts and Judiciary need modernising and this is now an opportune time for that,”
Oh the rage…the outrage…
Any chance we can tag on a bit about pensions to former ministers sitting in the Dail and get the full 100% cut? Rather than just deflecting attention from that onto the judges? Thanks.
