Varadkar says "Irish Water" meters are "Fine Gael's E-Voting Machines Multiples by 10"


The failed Minister for Health, now dumped sideways by Enda as the Minister for Social Destruction, Leo Varadkar in a rare bout of honesty has described the "Irish Water" meters as Fine Gael's E-Voting Machines

Fianna Fáil says Varadkar compared water meters to e-voting machines

Minister for Social Protection Leo Varadkar has been accused of claiming water meters were Fine Gael’s “e-voting machines multiplied by 10”. Fianna Fáil leader Michael Martin said Mr Varadkar made the comments during negotiations with his party."

Needless to say in a mad panic vacuous windbag Varadkar has furiously back pedalled and correctly said "“ The point I was making was that €500 million worth of public money has been spent putting water meters into the ground"

That's €500 million of ordinary decent tax payers money stupidly "put into the ground" and squandered by Fine Gael, (the party that 75% of the electorate voted against being returned to government), on useless water meters whilst also stuffing their cronies pockets with loot, instead of addressing any of the real water issues.

The entire assault on ordinary decent tax payers by Fine Gael's, "Irish Water" and their right wing privatisation lunacy must be ended now and any government TD or Ministermust be dumped if they continue to support "Irish Water"

Well, that's Coveney installed as next FG leader.

Leo: you are a fool. An intelligent one, but an undeniable one.

Where is the gobsh1te who started all this, Big Fill ?

Oh yeah. He got promoted to policy making at an even less accountable arena than Kildare Street.

If Phoney Gael forgive Leo for telling the ttuth, the media oligarchy owned by tax non fom billionaires eill not.

Fg's next leader will be the one with the least charisma or skill, so it is either Brainbox Harris or Slippery Donohoe.

An FG politician telling the truth? No wonder this hasn't gone down well amongst the Bluebots. But he is right. And no doubt FG's owner won't be too pleased.

I expect the media oligarchy to respond with a Sindo special on why Frances ISIS Fitzgerald will be the next Taoiseach.

Leo, you have p1ssed off FG's major shareholder.

Water charges were supported by Martin in the 2009 budget.

They were included in that government's national plan.

They and the installation of meters were signed off with the troika by that government when the country went bankrupt.

Hypocrisy is alive and well.

Was it not Coveney who conceived the plan for Irish Water? When FG were in opposition Coveney oversaw the publishing of a document called "New Era" in which he claimed FG would invest 7bn in infrastructure which included the setting up of Irish Water.

You mis-spelled "owner"

The water meters are useful.

The evoting machines which Martin and co supported were not able to do the job.

They would have corrupted the electoral system but for someone blowing the whistle.

The €85 billion EU-IMF bailout in November 2010 said that water charges will be introduced in 2012 or 2013 and the responsibility for water will be transferred from local authorities to a new water utility.

The national plan included the installation of meters in 1.2 million homes connected to the public water mains supply.

Martin was in government then.

Leo is in no mood to tow party lines any longer it seems..

Obviously Enda shafted him one time too many..

The Troika agreement said they'd have a look at implementing charges, no promises or pledges, we've been through all this.
