OPPOSITION GROWS TO NEW CHARGES – ANOTHER MEETING SET TO GO AHEAD

first_imgIn a growing opposition against the planned introduction of Septic Tank, Water and Household charges by the government, yet another public meeting to discuss the charges and campaign against them has been announced.The latest one will be held in Downings on November 28th.The community based meeting which is part of the ‘We Won’t Pay’ campaign will be held in a similar vain to that of a series of meetings which have already been held across the county and will feature guest speakers and an open debate from all attending. To date meetings have been held in various areas including Newtowncunningham, Letterkenny and Gaoth Dobhair where over 200 people attended and most recently in Donegal Town where over 350 people gathered to hear guest speakers which included two TDs voice their opposition and concerns of the government’s plans.All of the meetings so far have been community led having no party political allegiance with groups forming under the ‘We Won’t Pay’ banner in many towns across County Donegal.The meeting planned for Downings has been organised by local man Charlie Gallagher who says that it is important that communities pull together on the matter.“This issue of the government planning to tax septic tanks, our water and impose household charges affects everyone in this county and the best way we can resist their plans is by pulling together as a community and voicing our opposition from the grassroots up” Mr Gallagher said. The meeting which will be held in the Tramore Inn, Downings on Monday 28th November will feature guest speakers Thomas Pringle TD and community activist Micheál Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig.Speaking about the planned charges and his reasons for holding the meeting Mr Gallagher said “These charges are grossly unfair and are coming at a time of massive economic hardships felt by many families across Donegal.“We also have an unprecedented number of people unemployed who are already feeling the squeeze and heaping more taxes and charges on the ordinary people I feel is just unacceptable, and this is why I have organised this meeting in my area. It is obvious that these charges are no more than a method to gather funds to pay back the IMF bailout which was used to bail out reckless bankers and I don’t believe that the people should have to foot the bill for the mistakes of a small minority.“It is important that we all pull together on this matter and if a campaign is community led and by the people I think there is a good chance of fighting it successfully.”* The public meeting in the Tramore Inn will begin at 8pm on November 28th and all are welcome to attend.

Cricket: “How Indian batsmen play Anderson will be the key,”says McGrath

first_imgAdvertisement Advertisement(Image Courtesy: Cricket County)Former Australian Fast bowling legend and director of coaching at the MRF Pace Foundation Glenn McGrath feels that the Indian batsmen will need to have the edge against swinging bowlers such as Anderson if they are to win the series.“Anderson is going to be a big player. It is how the Indian batsmen face his swing and bowling in English conditions. If they can get on top of Anderson, that is going to make a big difference for them. I think for them he is definitely going to be the key,” McGrath said.When asked about the Indian bowling attack for the following series, McGrath said that the current team has a good set of pacers followed by some quality spinners. However he felt that India will miss the services of Bhuvneshwar and Bumrah.Having two spinners in the line-up, if that is going to be the best bowling attack it is fine. I am interested to see who are bowlers that they have. (Umesh) Yadav, Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami, who’s your backup quicks going in.“With Bhuvi and Bumrah out, it creates a bit of a hole. The first Test is going to be pretty important.”Also he added that Ishant Sharma’s inclusion in the test series can create a certain difference to the bowling attack.“He (Ishant) has got a lot of experience. And, that sort of makes a big difference when you know how to get wickets. He is not probably bowling as quick as when he first started. Have to see if he has the same wicket-taking potential as what he had when he first started. Yadav has got a bit of pace. They need him for the whole series.”When the attention shifted to the batsmen McGrath had one clear cut point to make. He felt that it was high time that Virat showed he can get runs in English conditions.“For Virat, he has done everywhere else, but in England. He is a quality player without a doubt, a class act, has got all the shots. He is quite aggressive and not a timid player. It is time he shows that he can score runs in English conditions too,” McGrath said.“It is a little bit tougher with the ball moving around. Australia used to be quick, bouncy whereas in England it is seam movement. If he can adapt and adjust to the conditions, he can score. When he is playing well he is as good as anyone going around.”It is to be noted that Virat had a forgettable tour to England in 2014. In ten innings the Indian captain could only manage 134 runs at a disappointing average of 13.50 as he was continuously troubled by the English swing bowlers.However since then in the 37 test matches Virat has played he has scored 15 centuries and has amassed 3699 runs at an incredible average of 64.89. But a test match century in England will still remain one in his bucket list.It will be interesting to see how the bowlers cope up to the new conditions and how Virat replies to his critics this time around.Also Read:England vs. India: Essex prove tough for the Blues in warm-up fixturelast_img read more

Premier Dennis King said last month his province was joining the court challenge because it wanted to have a chance to speak to the issue if necessary.He said at the time he didn’t want to be perceived as another Progressive Conservative premier joining other provincial conservative leaders fighting the federal government’s carbon tax.A spokesman for Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe’s office confirms P.E.I is no longer joining.Jim Billington says the island initially intervened in case to reserve the right to participate in the proceedings on either side of the debate.“We are encouraged by the support of Alberta, Ontario, Manitoba, Quebec, and New Brunswick in our case, and we respect PEI’s decision not to intervene,” he said in a statement to The Canadian Press.The Canadian Presslast_img read more
