Finding €300 million for a poor finance minister — 3 Comments

  1. Are you serious? You pay 21% VAT? Just on betting or on everything? Timely post my friend. The Melbourne Cup will be run Tuesday week and there’s always a field of Irish horses. I wonder if the online betters are taxed?

  2. We are paying 21% VAT and it’s going up to 21.5%. There is a reduced rate of 13.5% for things like electricity. There is no tax on betting except the 1%, which is being increased to a massive 2%.

    So, while a mother goes around the shops paying 21.5% VAT on necessities for her family, her husband can stand in the bookies making a minimal contribution to the exchequer.

  3. Easy take a hundred euro off of everyone in the country that will give him a spare million to give either to the banks or the race horse owners
