Election fodder?

Wed, May 1, 2013, 05:56

Sir, – It was instructive to witness Simon Coveney and the Government jumping through hoops to appease the farmers to quite rightly, finance the importing and distribution of fodder for starving animals – cattle, sheep and pigs. Contrast that with Government ill-treatment of the most vulnerable human beings in our society, children, the disabled and the aged. Easy to spot where the votes are, so much for a twisted sense of priorities. – Yours, etc,
