I agree with their TV license policy. I fear the day when Renua gets to decide what industry wants from 18 year olds.

Everyone would support the abolition of the TV Licence, it's had its day. Not so sure about abolitionig motor tax and replacing it with increased fuel tax. A large part of local authority funding comes from motor taxes so there would have to be a way of compensating for that.

There are arguments either way. But its not an earth shattering policy proposal - I can't see them getting much media coverage for this. The manifesto is lame.

Cant see them getting rid of anything TBH, not without replacing it with a new charge elsewhere, dont forget this government is cash strapped for cash. No government is going to turn down free money from the cash cow tax payer.

1.3 Taxation Policy
We will revolutionise personal taxation in Ireland by introducing a flat tax of 23%. A marginal tax rate in excess of
50% is morally wrong and acts as an obstacle to economic growth and personal fulfilment. Our flat tax will reward
work and act as a game-changing stimulus to the Irish economy

So they want to give huge tax breaks to the wealthy!

How will they make up the difference?

Everything was looking good until they showed their true love for the rich with a 25% tax cut.

The 23% will hit the people on then lowest incomes hardest while people on higher incomes will pay less tax, FG in all but name.

they are planning a communications tax, a la Pat Rabbitte. But they have decided to not tell the electorate, until they have been bought out.

Absolutely.  Unless they are abolishing indirect taxes, those on lower wages will be harder impacted.  But I don't think show pony Creighton is pitching for the lower class vote.  She loves horse riding, so that industry is to be given tax breaks.  Creighton is what the yanks would call, a basic bitch.
