Hmm! Despite FG/"labour" lies the Troika would accept a property tax alternative
"The Troika is “not wedded” to a property tax and is open to the measure being replaced by an alternative that would raise the same revenue, Fianna Fáil finance spokesman Michael McGrath has said"
Troika would accept a property tax alternative, insists Fianna Fáil – MyHome.ie Blog
Despicable low life politcal liars in FG/"labour" (not just the elected TD's/Ministers) when canvassing for votes in the last election assured the electorate in my area that there would be no property tax on anyone with incomes of less than 100K
They scooped up votes by being true to FG/"labour" form i.e. by being liars.
The FG/"labour" liars need to take heed of the following poll
"A new poll finds strong opposition to both property taxes plus water charges ", 66 per cent said it was a bad idea" -Fine Gael voters/supporters are found to to be more supportive of proposed new taxes-meanwhile a majority of Labour voters were found to be opposed to new proposed taxes"

Come the next election if the FG/"labour" liars proceed with the new property stealth tax they will be decimated and the tax will be rescinded anyway.
FG/"labour" are so politically inept, as the latest polls show they are handing power straight back to the loathsome FFers, though in truth it is hard to tell which party is which since FG/"labour" are enacting all of the FFer's useless austerity policies.
WHat would you suggest is a fair alternative tax to replace the mooted property stealth tax?
