    Water charges to be refunded within weeks, what next?

    The Sindo are reporting that those of us that paid our water charges can expect to receive up to €325 from Irish Water in the coming weeks.

    Mr Varadkar, who made the promise in an interview with the Sunday Independent, suggests the €170m needed will not come from money allocated for Budget 2018, and said payments will start before the Budget is announced.

    Anyone have an idea as to where the money will come from?

    And what happens now? Is Irish Water to stay? And the meter outside my home? How will we financially upgrade the system and maintain it?

    And how much has this failed policy cost the State?

    I paid a fine for parking on double yellow lines ten years ago. Last week the council removed the lines. I can park now at the same spot without any sanction.

    Can I get a refund? Would Paul Murphy organise a demo on my behalf?

    You were guilty, Murphy was found not guilty.
    End of story.
    As for your refund, it has gone towards the Garda slush fund.

    The deal with FF was that those who paid the water tax would get a refund. So long as those who didn't pay don't get the refund , I'll be less unhappy.

    It will come from the same source as other taxes but in this case those who pay will be the ones who benefit.

    No spin, the secret is in the word "Refund"

    I remember when the spin that the country would be destroyed if this money wasn't collected.

    Now Leo is just giving it away.

    For those who opposed this method to fund the maintenance and delivery of this essential service, you want it to be funded through general taxation right?

    And Irish Water?
