Rabbite says that it's a fallacy that there's no excessive use of water, but obviously can't provide figures to back up this claim.

Why is he on this program?

People on Twitter reminding Mick and Harry that they're journalists and not members of Fine Gael! Mick's face was a picture! And not a pretty one.

Pat Rabbitte continues to make a fool of himself. How did this fellow ever become a TD in the first place? What were voters thinking?

Because the only figures about water use are from those who were metered. No surprise that they weren't excessive users. There's no figures for their previous usage or the usage of those not metered. It' not rocket surgery.

Define "excessive use" who are they and how do they know?

Excessive use of taxpayers monies by irish water as a quango would have gone a long way to fixing our infrastructure not to mention the huge waste of money on consulting and legal advise.

Mick gives the final word on water charges to his pal, Harry, who tried to make some sort of point that water is not plentiful in Ireland.

Listening to some of the Arlene Foster and a few others it was like back to the 60's and 70's.

Appealing to their base did not work this time.

Very bitter nasty people.

So you're saying that there's no way of knowing how much water is being used unless it's measured, but if it's measured it won't be excessive, so it can never be proved that use is excessive? All very true, but not a reason for measuring. A district meter would measure leakage, but that would be no use to the government because it would require more outlay of money instead of money coming in. Just treat it as a public service and pay for it out of general taxation.

The installation of a meter did not change the amount of water I use and I expect the same can be said for the vast majority.

The swimming pool argument is a red herring, introduce a tax on swimming pools to deal with the cost of filling them.
