Hi

I just think that Gaetan was politely saying to people to read over their posts befroe they hit the ''submit'' button and think of how it will be read in black and white on a page.
We don't want to enforce any censorship on posts and, we have rarely done it in the past.
However, we do look out for chain of a post where ( in our opinion) it is beginning to get personal or targeted at any one particular person.

So, let us keep up the quality of post and debate therein.

Just be mindful and read your own post as a ''third party'' before you submit

Thank you all

Tom

€100 household levy in place for two years

The proposed household charge will be set at €100 annually payable next year, Environment Minister Phil Hogan has confirmed.

Mr Hogan said the levy was separate to water charges, which will be payable by 2014 and would yield some €160m.

Those in receipt of mortgage interest supplement will not have to pay the charge, nor will those living in social housing or so-called 'ghost estates'.

Commercial property would be exempt too, as would premises owned by a charity.

Mr Hogan said €100 was as low as he could possibly put the charge, adding that it worked out at €2 a week.

Speaking on RTÉ's Six One News, he said the charge was for the provision of local services in the communities.

Mr Hogan said he hoped people would come to accept the charge was a modest one and would only be levied on an interim basis for the next two years.

He said he had exempted a considerable amount of vulnerable people

The Minister said he would prefer not bring in the charge but it was part of the EU-IMF agreement.

He said the Government would put a fairer system in place in 2014.

Will people be as quick to say we dont live in a "Ghost Estate" now......... :roll:

I wonder by ghost estate he means ''any estate not handed over to Management company by the developer''??

The following households will have the charge waived :

1. Those in receipt of mortgage interest supplement

2. Those in certain category 3 and 4 unfinished housing estates (Estimated to be less than 400 estates)

Category 3 is where a receiver has not been appointed and the developer is still in place but effectively inactive . Category 4 is where the development has been effectively abandoned and is posing serious problems for residents .

Not that I'm happy about this extra tax or anything....just happy to clarify what kind of estate we actually live in....
