Water is not a commodity, it was never yours to sell. It belongs to us, the people. One hundred years of taxation makes it ours. Don't kid yourself that you have a mandate to privatize Ireland, you don't, full stop. You weren't elected because we want you, you were elected because it was Hobson's choice. In a two party system, you were the only other alternative to Fianna Fail. You spent fourteen years in opposition because we don't like you, we know your form, hammer the needy and reward the greedy.
In the absence of a credible alternative people voted for you, they believed your lies. Your election did not give you god like powers over us, it was a bargain - you get debt reduction and we'll do our bit, tighten our belts and suck up some of the debt that was not ours.
Well guess what government, you didn't hold up your side of the bargain. You never even asked for debt reduction. You tried bamboozling us with techno double speak but the bottom line never changed. Not one red cent has been knocked off the debt, not one. So stick your water charges where the sun doesn't shine, tell me how long you want me to spend in jail for refusing to be on my knees anymore. I'll gladly do time on this one.
NO WAY NO PAY.
