    HE PROVISION of Garda drivers and State cars to Cabinet Ministers, former taoisigh, the President, Chief Whip, Ceann Comhairle and others has cost almost €11 million in the past two years, it has emerged.

    This represents expenditure of €105,000 per week, or €15,000 per day. Fine Gael has vowed to end the practice of supplying the cars and Garda drivers, saying if it were in government a car pooling system would be introduced.

    What can I say……..€15,000 per day…..to put it in context thats the same as paying one day’s jobseekers allowance (€32.67) to 459 peopl. :roll:

    Libby i agree… my aunt who is in her 70’s and was big into the union movement in the 60 and 70’s, she thinks the whole country should come to a STOP…. JUST STOP YOUR CAR in the middle of the road, sit at your desk, for one hour, bring the country to a stand still!!!!

    Bertie still has a state car under his ass…. and will have for another few years.
