Nobody is trying to undermine the validity of our parliamentary election. What's happened is that two parties who have shared power for the last 100 years between them refuse to talk to the most popular party amongst the voters.

Fliers distributed outside of a SF event are not controlled by SF - but hey, why let the facts interfere with your story eh?
Would this be the same Amnesty International, UN, Irish Council for civil liberties who all condemned the PIRA for punishment beatings, shootings and would you believe even bombings during the troubles?

So is your position that the above organisations are right and you now condemn all actions of the PIRA during the troubles?

Tax burden on Irish households among lowest in EU
Eurostat data shows 20.3% gross disposable income went on taxes in 2015

Let politicians promise to cut taxes further so we can have even worse public services etc.

You will get your morally and historically confused answer tomorrow at 08.45am when Shinnerbot public servant Soundy logs in

The devil is in the detail, the data doesn't take into account the cost of housing, neither does it allow for the cost of childcare which for some families can be as much as the monthly cost of rent/mortgage.

The idea that we should be prepared to pay more tax for better services is all very well in theory but some working people are stretched to breaking point as it is.

A creative taxation policy could I am sure place a grater burden on those who can afford to pay more while protecting those who are struggling by increasing mortgage interest relief and doing the same for those shelling out for childcare.

How so? Do you think they could get a better deal from another eu country?

We have both a very progressive tax code & a relatively low tax burden because it's low earners that pay a fraction of what they'd pay in tax in other countries.

When the number crunchers get together I doubt any MN pays the official rate of any country, when all potential write-offs, transfer pricing etc are taken into account, so yes I'm sure they could, if we enforced our official rate.

Of course all MN's should pay more tax, that is not debatable, the question that arises is who gains from what little they pay to, currently we are major beneficiaries but that may not last if we actually messed with our tax rate or as Soundy says collect all that is due.

If every country got together and imposed a higher universal rate which would mean companies are forced to pay their fair share (like us idiot workers) it is very likely our tax take from them would diminish greatly. The real losers in all this is America, as all these large US MN's park their revenue earned from the rest of the world in off shore accounts, as to repatriate them will mean getting hit with US corporate taxes.
