Water treatment plants dont cost nothing in fairness

And our household tax covers that cost.

RTE News still reporting on this,14 minutes so far.

Saw that they basically gave it 16 mins, (they didn't want to look like they missed the boat like they did at the last protest) If the leaders of our government actually listened to their citizens, they would actually realise that this is bigger than the water charges. For the first time in Ireland, we are watching a revolt unfold, under our own governs, I believe our political system has how changed for ever (in a good way in my humble opinion)

I think you might be right. I genuinely believe water charges could cause mass civil unrest. We shall see.

I hope it's all about fixing the problems, rather than throwing everything out the window. Who knows people our strange. But we have a moment in Irish history that needs to be documented. (tv3 and rte aren't doing that)

I think that the protest movement over the water charges are growing and going from strength to strength. This really is something that the government can't ignore.

I'm not so hopeful. I believe the vast majority are genuine and honest but there is a danger of a small minority of crazy conspiracy theorists, law breakers and agressive people being seen to represent the group. When I see some of the outrageous nonsense being pedalled this could happen easily.

That argument reminds me of Putin and the Chinese administration stating "outside/foreign intervention" when talking about protests in their countries.

I have filmed (the 11th and today's protest) both we're very peaceful) my problem is that people need answers, in general they don;t ask for anything else. every Political party isn't given the answers ? I have a problem with that ?

Enda Kenny: It’s either water charges, or a 4% tax increase, or ‘boiling water for decades’

Sorry but I don't agree with that... a 4% increase when the government reduced the top rate by 1% and that costs them over 200 million how can a 4% yield enough? This seems to be scare tactics.

Really most people didn't cause this, most people our paying for it, most people our angery about that fact. Really look at what the people say

There are some genuinely well meaning people against water charges who actually believe some of the conspiracy claptrap. If that makes me Putinesque in stating that so be it.

In fairness no body knows about the water charges will be (that is what terrifies people), do you how much will it cost you evidently ?
