    They are getting it in the ear all over the country and are very close to breaking. The reaction to the Thornley Report when Hogan publishes it will tell a lot. If enough people rip them new ar$eholes immediately after that the whole lunatic idea will be binned.

    It's up to all of us to make sure that happens.
    I'd love to but the locally elected lad is one invisible lad. Haven't seen sight nor sound of him since the election.

    The charge may be the law of the land, but the property tax isn't.

    A quiet chat with your local FG rep could see it staying that way.

    Unless you have a better idea.

    Ring your FG TD's constituency office and tell them this is not what you voted for when you gave them the number 1 last year. Tell them your vote in the next election will go to someone who supports fair taxes.

    They'll get the message.

    Well, what about a backlash against big Phil. He certainly
    gave Fianna Fail a hard time on Cronyism. He probably thought
    he would not be at the trough himself so quick,

    He appointed a former F.,G officer to a state board, He appointed
    an auctioneer who admitted to influencing a F.G. councillor to vote for Quaryvale
    He also appointed some councilors to state boards.

    Failed F.G. election candidates were also appointed,
    It takes some neck to do this after been such a critic of Fianna Fail,

    At this time lets not forget what he said about water meters.

    Householders must pay at least €300 for installing water meters in their home,in 2014

    Mr Hogan should withdraw the threat to send out council staff
    knocking on doors warning people who have not paid the unequal
    and unjust household charge

    No members of the electorate expected Fine Gael to be a carbon copy
    of Fianna Fail in such a short time.

    Four years ago,A commission on taxation gave a recommendation
    for a fair and transparent system,, Its advice was not taken up

    It decided on an unfair system.

    It looks as if as least a third will not pay it.

    The government should have waited. do it right, and be fair to everyone.

    After reading this post I am this very minute going to write to Santa and plead with him to send big Phil around personally to each house. I will have the dogs' teeth sharpened specially.

    That would require me to lie, something I'm not good at. I voted Independent.
    Still, tis supposed to be a democracy of some sort, the majority picked the git, I might as well pick on the git.

    It seems it's costing a lot of money to collect the household charge.Over €7 million so far.
