    Planet Gilmorethanyou where he and his wife earn far in excess of the minimum wage, enjoying a lifestyle funded by a generous expenses regime.

    Of course he doesn’t understand why people are blocking the installation of water metres. How could he know what it’s like to live in fear of the next bill through the door. He’s so far removed from the real world and “labour” principles, it’s not even funny anymore.

    This is one of the statements that Eamon Gilmore made today:

    “Well I find them hard to understand because in fact the water meters are being installed to enable households to reduce what they will have to pay.”

    Households do not have to pay for water at present so how can the installation of water meters reduce what they will have to pay?

    If there is no meter in place they might estimate my bill that i don’t intend on paying but when I refuse to pay they will not be able to turn my supply down to trickle….
