Political Expenses, Pay and Pension Databases

With the election coming up, these databases of political pay, expenses, pensions, and allowances may all again prove of interest.

First up was the database of the €100 million paid out in salaries, expenses and allowances to TDs and Senators in the period between March 2011 and the end of July 2014:

Next came a full searchable database of the €65 million that was paid out in pensions, termination payments and other lump sums to our former politicians:

The last of them (and most painstaking of them all) was an analysis of the €27 million paid out to the various government ministers from the 2011 election to the end of 2014:
