New poll reveals that less than half of respondents intend to pay the water charges

The Government are fighting an uphill losing battle when it comes to water charges.

A new poll has starkly shown once again the unprecedented level of public revolt against the immoral tax.

The results reveal that less than half of respondents intend to pay the charge. Only 48% of 1,200 people polled said they would pay. Some 33% would not, with 11% undecided. The remaining 8% said it did not apply to them.

Wealthier voters are more likely to pay the charge, while those on lower incomes oppose it.

The poll also shows that homeowners are more likely to pay than those in rented accommodation, and that the cap in charges appears to have lured some people into paying.

A massive popular demonstration against the charges is scheduled to go ahead on December 10. Yesterday, Sinn Fein announced they will table a motion of no confidence in the Taoiseach on that same date.
