Just something to think about:
Irish Pay Water Tax – Corporations Dodge Billions: Russell Brand The Trews
Russell Brand being even more insufferable than usual in an Oirish accent. And using fallacious argument.
The “free” water falling from the sky is polluted by us, humans – our farms, cars, trucks, household waste, factories, energy plant, transport – so we must pay for it to be cleaned. (The twee house in the ad clip on the banks of the river…where does the grey and black water from it go….ironic??.) Taxpayers have always paid for water. Some taxpayers pay twice – to maintain their own wells / septic tanks. But some people in this country do not want to pay tax – they do want and expect the services from the taxes that the rest of us pay. I want someone stand up to them.
The giant corporate tax scam is another issue, not just a Irish one, Luxembourg comes to mind. Needs to be tackled at world level, along with other world issues such as climate change. To do that we need world governance, which we don’t have. Badly needed to match the globalised corporate world which seems to be able to run it’s own show. Now who will stand up to that?
