what happens next is they try to link this charge to your house whatever way they can..
Then they link water charges to your house.
Water is then privatised. Sewerage too.
Then they raise the household charge up to 1000 or so.
Other charges will be increased by private companies as much as they can get away with.
then they keep adding household charges to your bill each year plus interest and fines.
If they can they may take these monies directly from any payments the person receives from the state.
Expect new legislation for this.
When the house owner needs to sell or dies, they force the sale of the house to pay the amount owed or they confiscate the house in lieu of payment.

It's a long game to dispossess the poor so they will be nothing but cheap slave labour whose families do not own property and pay high rents to the rich landlord classes.

James connolly was correct when he said
"A republic without socialism means only the accents of the landlords will change"
