    Eamon Gilmore says no decision has been taken on the cost of installing water meters. I wonder when this decision was taken
    because one thing is certain about this Government is that when they say one thing they mean the opposite.
    To be fair about it both parties FG and FF have both been equally consistent. In fact it appears that this Government
    is bending over backwards to help to re-instate FF into the fold.

    This keeps being said by ministers, ''higher income taxes will hurt jobs'' and I find it so illogical that the only thing I can think of is that they heard it from some right wing think tank, then I thought...of course...the ECB...this is probably something they read off an ECB breifing memo and have no real understanding of what they're saying.

    If the state taxes an extra 5 percent from me in income tax, or if they lash me with myriad of charges, I'm just as badly off either way, only if they did it though taxation it would be fairer and those with more money would pay more, so the middle and working classes would not be getting robbed as much.
    The govt seem to have this laughable notion in their heads though that if they raise income tax instead of 200 steath charges that we'll look at our pay cheques and say ''oh theres loads of income tax, this isn't worth it, ill quit me 800 a week job and go on welfare for that juicy 185 a week instead....
    They must think when we look at our budgets we don't notice the 200 stealth taxes and all were lookin at is the income tax.

    But they reallly seem to beleive this line about income tax/jobs, so I'm not sure if its that they think WERE stupid, or if they themselves ARE stupid
    Perhaps its their 'special advisers' telling them stealth taxes are better, that we need new charges (not taxes!) to broaden the taxbase. Old but true saying - if you repeat something often enough even though its untrue people repeat it as true. I actually think some people including our politicians believe that new charges broaden the taxbase and don't threaten jobs.
