DONEGAL POLITICIANS REFUSE TO BACK MAN’S ‘CLEAN-UP POLITICS’ CAMPAIGN

first_imgTim Jackson with his mobile billboard campaign.Donegal TDs have all given the thumbs down to the Clean Up Politics campaign to reduce politicians’ earnings.According to Tim Jackson, founder of the campaign, this refusal has cemented the TDs’ lack of credibility among voters affected by years of cutbacks.“It’s very disappointing that not even one of the TDs was willing to show real leadership on this, indicating how little their words really mean when they decry austerity and corruption but aren’t interested in bringing an end to the perks and benefits taken by the political classes.”Jackson’s Clean Up Politics campaign called on Donegal TDs to: – Cut TDs’ salaries from €90k to €45k gross p/a– Cease €13m+ annual taxpayer payments to political parties and Independents– Account for all expenses, making receipts publicly available at the end of each year– Cut TDs’ pensions to the average public service rateDeputies Padraig MacLochlainn, Joe McHugh and Charlie McConalogue did not reply to the correspondence from the Clean Up Politics campaign, whilst Thomas Pringle and Pearse Doherty declined to endorse the changes, citing concerns including the possibility of increases in political donations from private sources.Jackson continued, “The proposal to cut TDs’ salaries meant they would still earn €10,000 more than the average industrial wage, but the point is that such a change would ensure our leaders might better understand the plight of ordinary families around this county, and also deter greedy politicians from making a career in what are crucial governing roles. The public however has the chance to create change at election time, because most of us can see through our TDs’ empty words.”Jackson, from Ballybofey, has indicated he may run in the General Election as an Independent.
