Minister for Communications Pat Rabbitte

Pat Rabbitte’s new TV Licence will apply to everyone “even if they do not have any device”.

Once again distancing himself from the cuddly creatures that everyone loves, Minister for Communications Pat Rabbitte has spent a year mulling over the best way to charge the country for the services of Pravda. A household charge (was he eating with Big Thick Phil Hogan we wonder?) seems to be his response.

Pay up let ye like good men.

  1. so even if I have no TV, I have to pay 160 euro a year no matter what?So the property tax has now increased again.

  2. Is it cheaper if the tv I don’t own is black and white?

  3. he can get screwed I don’t watch TV I detest RTE I think they should be obilerated off the map, so why would I pay for some I detest.

  4. Pat can go fuck himself. I haven’t had a television for seven years now, and won’t be paying for other people’s either. Oh and he can take that right royal cunt Joan Burton with him. As my first union rep used to say to the wee ones getting in house promotion “Fuck you and your working class, I’ve got the boss’s job at last!”

  5. For those of us in college (BTEA), paying this and then the water charges. I’m fucked!

  7. Lets hope this is the straw that breaks the camel’s back, start ransacking and burning government buildings. Luckily the Australians are going to pouch the Garda so there’ll be no clowns left to protect the jokers.

  8. Rabbitte must be out to single handedly destroy the Labour Party… If the TV license is no longer fit for purpose due to the fact that people can watch RTE on their laptop etc then surely the only sane and sensible solution is to scrap the license and pay for public service broadcasting from general tax receipts. Another regressive tax lumped onto every household in the country regardless of ability to pay is a fucking joke

  9. FYI, my fellow Irishmen and women, that Gobshite has swiped this idea from the current Swedish government, and it is unconstitutional. In fact, RTE should not be allowed to collect a license/fee at all, as they show commercials, which most other member stations in the EBU don’t!

  10. We don’t have a TV and I’m not paying for RTÉ to spew EU fascist propaganda-simple as that! If that scum bag Rabbite wants to try and get the fee from me, I will, as Cindy suggests, us Bunreacht to stop him. It is time for every citizen to swat up on OUR Constitution, it is the only protection we have against tyranny.
