Shinners got some good coverage in the Star ( of all papers) regarding the launch of their anti water rates web. site. Apparently there the only party completely opposed to water rates. Labour done the usual, eh yea, but no, but ehhh !!yea, but no, but...... Act. Reasons given on Web site along the lines of the following. A) Leakage, millions of gallons of water are lost due to coroded pipes, damaged infrastructure. Up to 50% of treated water !!
B) The city councils are owed millions of Euros in uncollected commercial water rates. Collect this money and invest it in fixing the leaking pipes.
C) The water we drink is covered in the collection of general income tax.
Very logical arguments there !!!
