Government needs to bite the bullet and make changes
The Government is running out of options to solve this water crisis of its own making. It has committed to both keeping the current charging structure in place until the end of 2018, and retaining Irish Water in its current form.
But if it is serious about getting things right and attaining some level of public acceptance, it will have to make some changes.
Opposition parties will also have to come up with well-costed alternatives if they want to scrap charges and replace Irish Water.
