Government for Sale

I must say I am disgusted by this latest "idea" from Fianna Fáil. They are offering prominent business people “networking opportunities” with ministers and TDs if they pay membership fees of €1,500 a year for three years. This is elitism in the exterme and I find it appaling that any government should think it acceptable to effectively rent out their time. No doubt those paying their €4,500 will be expecting more than a pint with Bertie, Willie and the lads. Access to government should be EQUAL for all the nation. It should be decided on the people's need for access, not FF's need for election funds.
