Who here thinks they can live happily without RTE tv and radio?
I know I can, I dont watch tv personaly but know that TV3 has better shows and doesnt require both ad and license fees to survive.
I’d be just as happy to see its doors close before I have to pay for this, and the Gov’s new internet fee can also swing. Im not going to pay the Gov for using the internet. I pay my provider enough and of that theres VAT. Why should they get more from me when its put towards this shower of over paid tax dodging arsebags?
They cant continue taxing us to fix thier sinking failures!. If it were a private company it would have been gutted and restructured but in Ireland everything contiunes on as normal and we are expected to cover the costs of their waste and ineptitude.
Until people refuse to continue to prop up their faults they will contiune and not change anything, Strip them of this revenue and they will be forced to rethink its spending. Its money we worked for and could be better spent on food or other esential overpriced bills like petrol, gas, electricity or waste.
