Judges and the pension levy?

Should the Irish Judiciary take a paycut or a pension levy like the rest of the public service? I think they should just to show the people they preside over that they are fair people who believe in justice.

What I really don't like is that it is politicians clamouring for the judges to take the cuts / levy. These are the same politicians who don't sit for nearly half the year. The same politicians who receive long term service payments, who get pensions while they are still sitting as TDs and senators, politicians who are on a leave of absence from their teaching jobs, these very same TDs.

It's just another attempt from the political classes to obfuscate and to distract from the mess they have partially gotten us into.
