An ominous brown envelope alighted on our doorstep this morning and that was the final straw.
Now we’re really bloody angry.
Where does this government get off thinking they can continue to raid the already empty pockets of Ireland’s working classes?
Enough is enough.
The letter kindly informed us that having received our payment of the Property Tax (which itself is a travesty since we paid stamp duty when we bought the kip in the first place) that they noted we hadn’t paid the Household Charge of €100 back in 2012.
Well that’s because in protest against the injustice of its imposition we didn’t bloody pay it (along with over half the country).
But there’s no escaping it now. Now they know who we are. And if we don’t pay, they can take it direct from our wages. Also they’ve decided, since we made them wait, that we’ll have to pay €200, double the original charge.
Don’t forget this is on top of a marginal tax rate of 52%, €200 a year in annual bin charges, €600 road tax, €350 property tax, a private pension levy, universal social charge and impending broadcast and water charges.
Are they for bloody real? Irish workers can’t afford anymore and yet here they come looking for more…
Can’t wait for canvassing politicians to call to our door before the local elections.
