€35k PAYRISE FURY
"I am a father of four. I am unable to work as I have Parkinson's disease. We have two sons who have autism and require services that we pay for out of our monthly children's allowance. My 10-year-old son needs a special needs assistant in class but your government is denying him this."
"Have some sense Enda, we didn't vote for you to watch you become Charlie Haughey-light!"
"To think that this amount could pay the salary of a nurse for a year in a ward threatened by closure or an assistant teacher for children with special needs... But why should they care? Cronies have to look after cronies and the common people will just have to shut up and pay."
