    Liveline Friday 22 November 2013



    Chris was in Dublin city centre when  he helped a young- woman  whose   purse  was  stolen......he   chased   the   thief, caught him, got the purse back.    He gave it back to her and she hardly said thank you.     He realised afterwards how he had compromised his own safety  and understands why  people are cautious about intervening.

    Suzi is a dog groomer...she wonders why it is listed as a luxury service with a 23 per cent VAT rate.   Many dogs breeds need regular grooming to keep them healthy, its a necessity rather than a luxury.
