Alistair Smith started this petition to Irish Government and

We already pay enough taxes to pay for our water, health services, army and state broadcast TV.

Enough is enough. We will pay no more.

This Household Broadcasting Charge is just another tax on each home in Ireland.

RTE has proven its bias consistently over the past few years of austerity. It has even censored items from news e.g. citizens assembly voting in favour of restoring citizens initiatives and then also when Vera Twomey won her Woman of the Year award. And we all know there were hundreds of thousands at some water protests that RTE reported as tens of thousands.

Most in Ireland pay for better quality TV and seek it elsewhere, why would you pay for state led propaganda that continuously lies and cloaks the truth. This is why many don't pay the licence fee anymore. As a protest.

Then there is the fact that most to nearly all Irish people are struggling to keep up with all the bills, rents, mortgages, school costs, food etc Many just simply cannot afford the €140 that goes to sponsor RTE!

RTE makes enough revenue from advertisement to cover their costs of poor television broadcasting.

We refuse to fund a propaganda machine.

We the signed will continue to refuse until RTE is made independent and left to stand on its own like other independent media e.g. Virgin Media.

Furthermore you can take it that all signed will not be voting for individuals and or parties who agree with this extra tax on each household.
