Irish Water Legal ?
~ Questions for your elected representatives-and ask them to sign
Am I already paying for water via PPI, PRSI and Motor Tax –General Taxation?
Where do you stand on the explicit recognition by the United Nations that water and sanitation is a human right?
Is it Law that I have to sign up to the Irish Water Contract? When Contract Law states…
an enforceable contract is when both the offeror and offeree have signed it.A contract is an agreement having a lawful object entered into voluntarily by two or more parties, each of whom intends to create one or more legal obligations between or among them. The elements of a contract are “offer” and “acceptance” by “competent persons” having legal capacity who exchange “consideration” to create “mutuality of obligation
Is it true for a contract to be enforceable by law the person entering the contract must have a willingness to enter legal relations. In other words they must declare via their words or actions that they intend the contract to be legally binding? A contract is a legally enforceable agreement between parties which is binding in law. The parties commit to certain obligations in return for certain rights.
For a contract to be formed, it must be a bargain with at least two persons. A contract cannot be made with one person alone, nor may it arise between two or more persons who are a variance with the content of a proposed agreement. The process of forming a contract can be analyzed using a framework, where one person, the offerer, makes an offer which another person, the offeree, unconditionally accepts. The key question in a contract is to whether the parties unconditionally agree to enter into certain obligations to each other.
Are you Irish Water? The Co. Council? Government TD’s? Ignoring my Constitutional Rights, the Laws of the Land & EU in Contract Law, Consumer Acts, and The Sale of Goods and Services Act 1980 with regard to Irish Water? YES
Do you agree water is essential to human life, and international examples of privatisation have resulted in higher costs for consumers and a loss of democratic accountability over water provision? Do you believe that water is a public resource and should never be privatised?
Can you confirm that Irish Water will remain in State ownership and will not be sold to any Company or Corporation whose first priority will be the shareholders and not the supply of clean safe water to the consumers?
When a mains break will occur will it be Irish Water who will fix it? When a complaint is to be made to Irish Water who will deal with it? Will the complaint be logged, referred to the relevant local authority who will then report back to Irish Water, who will then give an order to the local authority to carry out the repairs? Do the HSE and O.P.W have enforced and costly responsibility with Irish Water?
It is of my opinion that the public’s and my own personal rising anger over the blatant miss-truths that have surrounded successive governments and the current fiasco that is Irish Water are more than justified and I have decided not to consent to become a customer of Irish Water and refuse to contract.
