    I'm not clear on whether this water charge will apply to people with their own well. I assume not but I don't remember seeing any details to confirm it.

    The Irish Times is reporting that "sources" say water charges will be introduced, based on usage, by 2014, at rates of around €250.00 - 400.00 per household each year.

    Installation of meters will be a large and expensive operation, but would be essential if water supplies are to be privatised and run for private profit, as usually required by the IMF.

    This charge will be in addition to the property tax/household charge.
    The likes of me da and much of me family would simply be unable to pay. What a farce-that people should be charged for water on an island. I bet none of the elites in power will have to pay it.

    Well, they will still have to pay the housegold charge... or do you believe such boIIocks as "temporary" and "interim" in connection with taxes?

    Very transparent stuff going on the past day or so, some nice optics for the election. Obviously everything regarding the water charges has been planned for a long time but we are getting a stunt where the labour party will "secure" in the next few days a variety of "allowances" so they can spin their "holding back FG" spiel on the doorsteps.

    No, no dear, they'll just award themselves a pay rise that will be over and above the amount required for the water charges, and will then "have to pay it like everyone else". Sigh

    “I think it’s never helpful that issues that have to be considered by government are trawled in the media in advance,” Gilmore said today.
