Government failing to protect consumers

Bloody hell, I hate the way the Irish Government is failing to protect consumers and instead are basically telling the consumers who are being ripped off to deal with it themselves.

The environmental management charges that were recently introduced and were supposed to be paid by the manufacturer are now being passed on to the down trodden Irish consumer, even if they are not handing in their old electrical device to be recycled. And how does the government, which introduced this tax, respond to this? They support calls for users to boycott the retailers who do this. Come on, someone has to stand up for consumers and stop retailers ripping us off every chance they get.
