Given that the majority have not paid water charges, this amounts to a de facto referendum when the majority of people have declined the proposal.

Only 46pc of people have paid, with 54pc saying no.

It is time for the Government to accept the decision of the majority and scrap the decision to bring in water charges in a country where it rains three times a week, at least, all year round.
