Call To Arms Over Irish Water
Most expensive water in Europe:
The General Secretary of Direct Democracy Ireland, Drogheda man Anthony Connor, who was also a local election candidate, as called on the people of Louth/Drogheda to rally together and make a stand against Irish Water installing water meters, “We have had great success, we stopped Irish Water in large parts of Meath through peaceful means and prevented them from installing water meters”.
Anthony stated that Louth has not yet been targeted for the installation of water meters but work will commence in Louth from September, Anthony went on the say “I will stand with anyone that does not want a water meter installed at their home, Irish water is a private company limited by shares and it’s a complete Lie when they say it is to conserve water; in reality it’s a Bond holder payment tax forced upon an already pushed to the limit Irish Nation”. He went on to say “we already pay for water through taxation, last year alone €1.4Billion was collected for water. 2% of all V.A.T goes into water as well as 5% of all Motor Tax; so before a bill even comes through your door we officially have the most expensive water in Europe. We have started a national campaign with the intention of taking a legal challenge against the government and Irish Water.”
The National Citizens Movement has been set up by various different anti water tax groups and will see them unite for a major push against Irish Water. When asked about the numbers of people refusing the water meters he stated “…most people have the attitude, let them put the meter in we just won’t be paying for water”, a stance which Anthony said he welcomes, mass non compliance will defeat this unjust Tax.
Anthony then asked why the Labour Party have failed us and wonders why they have become so disconnected from the very people they claim to care for? “Maybe for them it’s hard to understand the plight of the working poor and unemployed when most members of the labour Party earn 6 figure salaries, they are no longer Labour for the people, they are Labour, the franchise. Labour Inc. a business protecting their wealthy established Party leaders and all the well connected individuals therein. Labour exists as a memory now. The champion of the people has been vanquished. Labour is no more”.
