Workers and Unemployed Action Group (South Tipperary) at its Annual General Meeting has unanimously decided to withdraw from the United Left Alliance. WUAG will continue to campaign against government austerity, cuts in public services , against the household charge/property tax and for fair taxation including a wealth tax and higher taxes on the incomes of the super-rich.
Wallace seems to be the catalyst that’s splitting the ULA apart. What dim wits they were to take him on board in the first place.
Will the ULA now just fall apart and everyone go their separate ways.
Another dream bites the dust.
This man sits on the mayors’ throne as the observant overseer of derelict sites, depleted wallets, empty shops, and decaying infrastructure.
This begs the question what can this man do? In fact, very little, for the powers of local Government are curtailed to the point that they are almost ineffective but not totally.
Now a few words of advice to “Big Billy S” bear in mind you are not totally without power you can do something about rates. You can take action to make derelict sites attractive to prospective business owners, thus creating employment.
However, you know Billy Boy you puzzle me. Your party has advocated the boycotting of the household tax a payment that is now the law of the land and which many householders have already paid. What bewilders me here is the left has always been a strong backer of property taxation. Today such taxation has become a major component of local Government. You as a member of WUAG are suggesting people do not pay their taxes. No taxes, equates to no money for services. I wonder Mr. Mayor where you stand. I hear on the grapevine that a local wordsmith is composing a song called the “Shoer Wiggle”

Do the citizens really need a mare in their town
