No to water charges!

The politicians in the Assembly are now openly speaking about imposing water charges on householders in April 2011.

This additional bill will be in the region of £369 a year – but once they are introduced they will go like the gas and electricity prices and increase once they are fully brought in.

Householders already pay for water through our rates. The introduction of water charges will be a double-tax. Even though the politicians were told in no uncertain terms that the overwhelming majority of people are opposed to water charges, it seems they are now preparing to introduce them. They need to be reminded that they have no right to do so – there is no mandate to introduce water charges.
