Last Saturday’s rally in Ireland organised by the Campaign against Household and Water Taxes (CAHWT) demonstrated clearly that the opposition to the Household Taxes is likely to be a major thorn in the side of Fine Gael and Labour over the next period. The immediate problem for the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government however is not the 3,000 people who attended the rally at the National Stadium and those who attended the other rallies. It’s the fact that only 328,201 households have registered for the Household tax, from a total of more or less 1.6 million.
