a) required to register b) numbers registered and c) numbers paid.
In recent days there is widespread manipulation of figures to make the Government position look a little less dreadful.
The baseline figure for registration is 1.8 million NOT the 1.6 million which is being used in the last few days. Therefore as of last night the numbers recorded (482,000) as having registered is 27 % of the 1.8 million. This leaves more than 1.3 million who have not registered or 73%.
Keep Up The Boycott:
We urge the ordinary people all over the country to keep up the huge Boycott of the Household Tax which is their rejection, not just of a new tier of taxation which will quickly go to €1,000 but of the disastrous policy of Austerity which is wrecking our society.
Support for Protest March to Fine Gael Ard Fheis this Saturday Starting at the Garden of Remembrance at 1.00PM
We fully support the demonstration on Saturday and believe that a major, well disciplined and peaceful demonstration of people power will be further evidence of the strength of the Campaign. We call on all those who support the Campaign to attend with their families for a genuine show of the real feelings of the majority of ordinary people in this country.
We now demand that the Government withdraw the Household Tax forthwith and cease bullying the decent majority of our people who have financed this State for decades while rich elites cheated.
