Looney "labour" party calls for water charge payments to be refunded!
'Don't delay inevitable on water refunds' -Penrose - RTÉ News
The Labour Party has published a bill to refund customers who have paid their water charges.
N.B. I always use italics when I refer to the party formerly known as Labour as they dragged an honourable party into the pits and have forever besmirched and tainted the name of Labour.:roll:
So we now have the hilarious actions of a destroyed party that gleefully kicked the heads in of the poorest and most vulnerable in society with savage welfare cutbacks and actively encouraged slave labour, now calling for the "Irish Water" charges taken by FG/"labour's" crony stuffed superquango to be refunded. "Labour" pledged as a red line issue that they would not bring in additional water charges but as soon as they entered government they dumped every principle and pledge that they made and behaved as thugs and bullies to enforce the looting of money from ordinary decent tax payers to pay the bankers tax of "Irish Water" charges. Worse "labour" being right wing demagogues, they didn't even bother to bring in an "ability to pay"clause so they could target the poorest the most. They were also FG’s Kapo’s torch bearers to enable the privatisation of “Irish Water” as they refused a referendum on the issue.
Now that they have been unceremoniously dumped from government and in an astounding bout of hypocrisy, the party that attempted to mug the electorate with additional water charges are doing a volte face and have published a bill to refund (their terms!) "Customers" and give them their own money back! :roll:
So Piester’s is looney “labour” right to bring the bill to government ? Or is it just more craven hypocrisy as they are out of power and presumably are unable to get their filthy hands to enrich themselves with money looted from “Irish Water” and are hoping to get some credibility back from the electorate that they looted and stole money from with threats and political policing?
