CPWP say Taoiseach’s latest comments on water charges insult the people’s intelligence


The Taoiseach has been accused of insulting the intelligence of the Irish people, after saying that people are in control of their water charges because they can turn off the tap.

"Can't Pay Won't Pay" says this is a flippant response from Enda Kenny, particularly after admitting that 40% of water is wasted in leaky pipes.

No amount of tap-turning or not flushing, they say, would make up for that level of waste.

Donegal Can't Pay Won't Pay Spokesperson Francis Mc Clafferty says these charges have nothing to do with conservation, and if they had, the millions being spent on installing water meters would have gone towards stopping leaks..............
