Wishful thinking: Joan Burton says that she would expect payment compliance among Irish Water customers to “increase” in the future

The Tanaiste remains steadfast in her misguided belief that Irish Water, in its current form, is a viable entity.

The company claimed this morning that payment compliance has now magically increased from 43% to 51%. No sooner was the word out when Ms. Burton quickly composed herself and grabbed the nearest microphone to hail this as a “significant improvement.”

She said “We hope to encourage everybody to pay – and already if the figures, if the story that’s in the media this morning is correct, then what Irish Water predicted – we’re setting up a very large public utility,”

“The expectations are that as each billing cycle arrives, the actual payment rates will increase over time”
