TDs enjoy cheapest pints

I love this cheap stuff! Enjoy this pint of bitter. Bitter news that is.

It's been revealed that Irish politicians are availing of some of the cheapest drink prices in all of Dublin.

Reports this morning say an audit by the Comptroller and Auditor General's office has found that a pint costs as little as €3.70 in the Dáil visitors' bar - more than 50c cheaper than elsewhere in Dublin.

The audit has also reportedly raised concerns about the slow rate at which TDs pay off their bar tabs and the falling profit margins at the four bars and restaurants in Leinster House.

However, this morning's reports said the audit committee had dismissed suggestions that prices should be increased.

OK let's see...

Politicians getting a better deal than us ordinary folks? Check.

Politicians not paying off their debts? Check.

No movement whatsoever to alter the situation? Check.

It's enough to drive you to drink wouldn't you say? Just make sure you hang out in the right places...
