Enda Kenny was on the news the other day telling us that the €100 property tax was needed for street lighting, footpaths and libraries. He topped this dishonest argument by saying:
There’s nothing free in this world anymore.
This, of course, is not true either.
The annual top-up of almost €50,000 he received as leader of the Opposition was free and the €17,205 Jan O’Sullivan is pocketing on top of her minister’s salary of €130,042 is also free.
