Landlord, Coles2, Mary Lou McDonald & Douglas Boyd Barrett all went to private schools - maybe there is some validity to the point about private schools :)

:oops: Meant to say Richard.

All the same it is amazing how many of our left of center politicans are champagne socialists :)

I wonder what I could have gotten, 10 years ago, on an ex-FF, Trinity graduate who went to a SCD private school running unopposed as the leader of SF.

The "champagne socialist" jibe is depressing reflection of a society where people are not only expected to advocate in their own selfish best interests and those of the narrow social group they grew up around, but are criticised for doing otherwise.

Got forbid someone should form their own world view.

except Paul Murphy, RBB and the rest advocate against a proper property tax - that's hardly against the interests of the propertied middle classes. None of them advocate CGT on PPRs either

I've see Mary-Lou posters around the inner city with the slogan "one of our own" - that's simply misleading

Everything is relative anyway, 18 months ago, I took a pay cut of about 25% to work close to home.
My disposable income remained about the same, due to the costs of commuting to Dublin each day.
