Not a bad scratch...

Meanwhile, on the other side of the Irish Sea, Bertie Ahern has just trousered a rather nice pay increase, which takes him to €310,000, or in pounds sterling, £216,386. The opposition are not impressed.

The Lord Protector gets £187,611. Given the relative populations of this nation (60,587,300) and that of the Irish Republic (4,239,848), Broon might think he is entitled to £3,029,149 (DON'T tell him). Alternatively, maybe Ahern should have his pay packet cut to £13,128 and the all important 86 pence. Or €18,808.60.

(I am nor being entirely serious about Ahern. He seems to be doing a better job there than Broon is here).

To be fair, you are forgetting the Irish Diaspora, which is anything from the legal definition (~3 million) to the actual (~80 million).

Are the diaspora governed from Eire? Can a member of the diaspora calim welfare benefits, vote, get medical treatment? Why do they need to be taken into account, then?
