Play

MAIREAD McLOUGHLIN is in studio to discuss the Campaign Against Hosehold Charge is a blanket tax that affectsa every home in the State. Everyone, regardless of income, employment status, or family circumstances, is required to pay.

MAIREAD’s objection to the Charge is not political, it is a matter of principle.

My home is not an ‘asset’ says Mairead. It doesn’t generate income, it isn’t an investment, it is purely a home. Why should people have to pay a tax merely in order to have a roof over their heads?
