When is a water tax not tax?

Good news!

The Greens have succeeded in renegotiating the Programme for Government and among some of the hidden delights of the new programme is a €175 water tax on every home in the country.  

Just what we need in a recession, another tax, but wait it seems this isn't a tax because according to a government source "It's not a new tax. It's a charge for a service,"

So its a case of "Read my lips, no new taxes! (just lots of new service charges)".
