Thread: Peter Mathews (FG TD) calls for Property Tax to be scrapped via Supplementary Budget

  1. #1

    Default Peter Mathews (FG TD) calls for Property Tax to be scrapped via Supplementary Budget

    How long more can Peter Mathews last in FG?

    Fine Gael's Peter Mathews calls for emergency Budget to scrap property tax - Independent.ie

    A FINE Gael TD says there should be an emergency Budget to scrap the property tax being planned by his own party.

    Outspoken Dublin South deputy Peter Mathews has instead said the money can be made up through a 2.5pc levy on corporation profits, a betting tax and a levy on income over €120,000.
    Is this just hot air from Mathews? Will he face sanction from the party, or will he just be ignored?

    “Let’s take a bigger step after some deep thinking,” Mr Mathews said. “Could we dare to be courageous to bring in a supplementary budget that might park the property tax and bring in three other strands of revenue creation..."

    He also wanted a few months ago a wealth tax examined.

    Is this motivated by his being in a constituency which is going to be hit relatively harder by the tax?

    I agree with him on this but the Bruton wing would never let their constituency be taxed in such an unfeeling manner. I mean all the high earners,the bookies and the MNCs <shrill> MIGHT LRAVE-EXACTLY LIKE FRANCE <shrill> and then wealth would ber destroyed -destroyed -I tells ya.

    Peter the socalist eh?
    The truth of an idea is not a stagnant property inherent in it. Truth happens to an idea. It becomes true, is made true by events.

    He is turning into Dublin's answer to Mattie McGrath. Blueshirts in South Dublin must be feeling the heat on this.

    I don't know if you are joking or not but it looks as if he would fit in better in that SF.

    This, along with his performances on Vincent Brown, shows how he disagrees with party policy on far too many issues to remain in FG.
