Do you genuinely believe we have enough welfare Ninja's that can elude the checks and balances put in place for their entire adult life, to skew any stats in any great measure?No-one has a problem with people going through a rough patch, whats irritating is the refusal of the left in this country to even acknowledge that many people have no interest in working, are content to game the system & moan endlessly.
Everyone games the system. From politicians, to employers, to councils to the sick and poor. That's why we put yahoos like Varadkar in charge. Did he lose interest in his welfare fraud campaign when something more shiny caught his eye?
The 'I'm alright Jack, go f**k yourself' Tories have you brain washed.There was a time when being homeless meant sleeping on a park bench or the like.
We are now getting to the point where you must be counted as homeless unless
you have and own a modern mortgage-free 4 bed detached in your first choice location. Anything short of that and “the state” ie your neighbours are letting you down and you are
entitled to compensation.
Rather than have thousands of men, women and children sleeping rough, the state and councils instituted 'emergency accommodation'. This is Hotels, B&B's and private rentals paid for by the tax payer to keep these homeless people off the street. Generally you'll find most, not all, rough sleepers are single men, because they are lower down the list. The state recently broke the all time record for homeless children. So even if you were to buy Minister Murphy's lies, having more homeless children than we did in the slum days of the 1930's is some achievement.
The big, main, number one point, you need to remember, for the love of jebus remember, the housing crisis and emergency accommodation costs INCLUDE WORKING TAXPAYERS, (the sick, elderly and poor) who cannot make ends meet and need a tax payer dig out.
All of these people are vetted by the department. If you've issue with this, talk to the department.
We need to start looking out for the tax payer. Murphy's lies are costing you and I money. If he takes homeless people put up in private rentals off the homeless books, they might be there for months and months rather than being made a priority. Whatever your feelings towards them, the tax payer is paying a fortune for these hotels, B&B's and private rentals. To sweep one or more under the carpet is hiding the cost from the tax payer and making Murphy look good, not solving anything or saving us money.
It's about optics and point scoring with these FG jack asses. If the homeless figures are lower, even if it's just looks and we aren't saving any money, grand job. The wasters.
