Can you point to evidence of that specific intention either on this thread or elsewhere?

OK. Perhaps English isn't your first language.

strong enforcement and penalty provisions for non-compliance."

They'd never consider a "lein" I'm sure.

You were having your own problems with it not too long ago! A short memory too?

I see you chose to ignore this too...

This suggests you have a choice, but you don't.

Taxes are not optional.


You can't choose to not pay VAT.

You can't choose to not pay income tax.
I can choose not to pay somebody else's though.
Not paying someone else's gambling debts.

I'm not sure what you're referring to - maybe because of my short term memory problems.

Have a read up the page - I posted the details of the Q4 Review, and I've acknowledged the fact that the tax is going to rise, as specified in the Q4 Review, a couple of times in the last few pages.
My copy of the MOU has the Q4-2012 review as the Eight, not the Ninth review, so this might have thrown you.

Perhaps before you respond to a post, you might read the contents over a couple of times and we might avoid this kind of basic misunderstanding.

I think you are deliberately miss-understanding me. I said the coalition is something that is cobbled together, not the MOU.

I'll do that. And if you take your own advice, you can avoid the same basic mistake.(pot meet kettle, ring any bells))

Interesting comments from Leo V. on The Week in Politics when asked to comment on only 10% having paid the €100 Tax. "It doesn't have to be paid by end of month...as long as its paid by end of tax year we will actually make more money on late fees".

That eijet is going to get himself into a lot of trouble. See how smug he was about it? I bet he will back track on that, just like he back tracked on "not a single RED cent". Wonderful how we can record these things and they still don't admit their mistakes.

I sent mine back to Phil Hogan when it came. Get it out of the bin (if its not too late) and do the same.

The address is Minister Phil Hogan, Grovine, Co. Kilkenny . Just make sure to deface it enough so that it cant be used again .

So you're advocating sending defaced documents to Phil Hogan's private home address?

Why is that you want to target his home address rather than his Department address or constituency office? Intimidation?

So little money, so many posts. This thread depresses me. There are so many joyless people in this country. Was it always this way?
