I believe that the establishment of Irish Water will turn out to be the greatest fraud inflicted on the Irish people since independence.
I suspect that Irish Water has already been sold to private business. There are a number of signals that seem to point to this, which I’ll come back to later.
I strongly suspect that there are forces working behind the scenes, with the Government’s full support, who are pushing an already agreed but secret agenda.
I strongly suspect that today’s bizarre incident where unasked for legal advice was thrown at the Public Accounts Committee warning them that they have no legal right to question Irish Water CEO John Tierney is part of this secret agenda.
I strongly suspect that business interests, who have powerful politicians in their pockets, are calling the shots.
I strongly suspect that senior ministers and even the Taoiseach are receiving direct orders from these business interests directing them in how they should respond to the people’s opposition to water charges.
