Phil Hogan speaks! March 29, 2012Posted by WorldbyStorm in Economy, Irish Politics.
I’m pretty sure he didn’t mean the following to come out quite the way it did…
When asked if he would resign if fewer than half the households registered, he replied: “Seeing that I’m the first Minister to bring in a new tax without a proper household tax database, I’ll be sure that I’ll bring it in as best as I canand I will not be contemplating resignation.”
Meanwhile we can watch the by now near hourly updates on the progress of registration.
From there here’s my favourite line… so far:
The 500,000 mark appears to have been reached, but the figure is still short of 1.6 million.
