They are dipping their greedy little paws into my pocket again.
They are to introduce a new “household charge”. The bastards.
For once, I don’t really blame the gubmint. Oh no. This little drop of pick-pocketing comes directly from our new overlords – those cunts in Brussels.
It could be argues that some taxes have a legitimate purpose. Income tax is supposed to go towards the salaries of teachers and nurses and other such. Car tax is nominally supposed to pay for the upkeep of roads. [I’m having a very difficult time here trying to keep a straight face.] The television licence is supposed to go towards providing television and so on. Now I know that’s all a huge steaming pile of shite, but there is a perverted sort of logic there.
Where I start to get pissed off is when they try to charge me for nothing other than the fact that they want money. This latest move is a case in point. They are trying to tax me for the simple reason that I exist. I live in the country and therefore I have to pay their fucking tax and I get sweet fuck all in return. What’s worse is that the old farmer in his corrugated-iron roofed house in the West of Ireland is to pay the same as the Slazengers in Powerscourt House. I am going to pay the same amount out of my pension as Bono does out of his tax-avoided millions. Very fucking equitable.
The really galling thing though is the fact that it is the first in a long line of charges imposed not by the gubmint but by the Brussels wankers. They are like that insect that finds a grub, paralyses it and then lays eggs inside its body. We have been sold out to Brussels and they are now going to feed off us because there is no escape. And where is this new tax going? Ultimately it is going to pay off the German investors who were fucking idiotic enough to invest in a dud Anglo Irish Bank.
This new charge is only the beginning. Next up the road is the Property Tax where they charge us because we happen to have a house [that we have slaved all our lives for] and Water Charges. Doubtless there will be others. It wouldn’t surprise me if they imposed a Grave Tax so they can carry on milking us after we are dead.
One interesting point though – in theory they can cut off our water if we don’t pay the water charge, and could conceivably evict us from our homes for not paying property tax [though that would never get past the courts]. But how to they remove us from being? Shoot us? That means they will introduce a bullet tax.
