Life is not about slavery, exploitati​on and work. Dignity, self-respe​ct and community are core values for me.

It is always the conservative cossetted nice boys who propose wage cuts, low pay and long hours for the proles. Well I’m with Patricia King on this. The situation in every business will be slightly different. I know that if employers show their aggregates to employees in pressure situations, the employees will respond. Union official friends of mine (SIPTU x 2) told me that each has recommended this personally. The objective of Irish life is not to work till you drop so that German banks will not need recapitalisation. I am with workers and small businesses working together in a spirit of co-operation. I HATE exploitation of people.

How many RTE producers = One Pat Kenny? etc
