    "We are giving this Ard Fheis a clear commitment to the people that if elected we will abolish the family home tax". Pearse Doherty.

    Excellent, that'll really put the sh1t up the FFailures and the austerity government.

    The champagne socialists of Labour will be shaking in their boots now...

    Aren't SF being a little dishonest?

    Their solution to the nation's financial ills is a wealth tax but their wealth tax INCLUDES THE FAMILY HOME LESS A 20% DISCOUNT OFF THE MARKET VALUE PLUS OTHER ASSETS YOU HAVE ACQUIRED OUT OF YOUR TAXED INCOME.

    This means that if you live in Dublin, struggled to buy a second home to provide a pension then you are likely to be among the 'wealthy' to be hit by this 'wealth' tax. Pathetic!

    Are you saying someone who buys a second house shouldn't be taxed on it?

    I think its great news that SF are going to abolish the hated family home tax

    Just what we need another populist party.

    It is not possible to close a €12bn deficit without significantly impacting on people on high, middle and even low incomes. it just isn't doable.
    However, the sad reality is that many people still believe it is and will vote for it.

    Stealing peoples houses is a step too far, when you consider all these people worked for their homes, they didn't sit on their arses like thousands of others and expect the state to give them a home..........a joke of a country.

    Populist, thats good, FG and Lab both fooled people with promises and changed their tune as soon as they got their ar$es into the ministerial limos.

    Austerity shouldnt just be for the workers, lets see the tears in the wealthy folks eyes and then we'll know "we're all in it together"

    They aren't stealing their homes, they are imposing a tax on the value of an asset. Similar to what is done in many if not most other developed countries.

    And the austerity hasnt just been for the workers.
    There have been very significant increases in income taxes and rightly more for those earning more.
    Taxes on all capital transactions have been increased.
    Most but sadly not all tax shelters have been removed.
    We now have a wealth tax on the second biggest store of wealth in Ireland, pensions.
    The largest store of wealth is residential property and this new tax will cover that.

    As i said most people will always believe they are getting a raw deal and someone else should pay. The reality is that everyone will have to pay more.
