I’m genuinely quite stunned at the ineptitude of FG/Lab in pursuing this course of action.
Not only are they going to charge us for something that’s currently free, but their going to force us to pay for the privilage of being charged,
While I never rated Kenny very highly to begin with, this could be a spectacular own goal. Truly astonishing in it’s concept.
It’s so bizzare that I’m just wondering if they put this proposal out there to gauge public reaction before making a final decision on it ?
Will be interesting to see how much the fixed charge will compare to the metered bills.
In other news today, cigarette companies have blamed doctors for making lung cancer patients ill by giving them doses of chemo and radiotherapy.
FF … FFuck Off !
irish water will be quickly privatized. They cannot be holding much debt on their balance sheet. The process is currently being designed as such.
It’s time for composting toilets, rainwater harvesting, and disconnection from public water supply. If I had the annual average water charge, I could do a payback calculation. Anyone got any ideas what the per m3 charge will be?
I took both charges into account. Presumably you will get a half discount for rainwater harvesting. If you consumed no public water and the meter stayed at zero, you would be gaming the system, if you inject your waste water back in. I’d imagine they’ll have a standing charge to take this into account
composting toilets would get rid of a third, efficiency of use another third, and grey water recycling could take another chunk off, but I cannot see how you would get rewarded for this, if they have a standing charge
Yes - but I don’t think we thought we were going to be charged for the privilege of being a**-raped for the rest of our naturals.
This is all about privatisation - we will make the investment and someone else will make the profit - I believe the lucky recipient will be Anglian Water - they have been sniffing around the country and wining and dining politicians for the guts of two decades.
Again this falls into Phil Hogans bailiwick. Every government has its dogma-driven politician - blind to common sense to the point of being a political liability. I thought that this governments dogma cretin would be Leo Varadkar but he was spotted early and the handlers have carefully manouvred him to places where he can do little or no harm. Phil is this governments bull in a china shop - he can look forward to a lifetime of ridicule in the company of Richie Ryan, Albert Reynolds, Charlie McCreevy, Mary Harney and Michael Mcdowell - welcome to the club Phil!
