The latest homeless figures show 8857 people in emergency accommodation, 3333 of these are children.

This is an increase of 483 people in 1 month.

This is the figure that Simon Coveney said would be 0 by July of this year.

Can FG break through the 10,000 figure by the end of the year ? They are certainly doing their
best to increase the homeless figures with no Security of Tenure for Tenants and Rents spiralling
out of control.

They have also allowed tenants to be evicted with minimum effort by the banks reposessing
buy to lets. Still no legislation in this area despite promises.

They have a solution and it is just to wait out for the next economic crash. Immigration will slow, emigration will increase and the vultures will swoop in again.

That could be 2030

Our economy is not reliant solely on a construction sector as in the deluded years where we just bought and sold houses to one another.

Mortgages, car loans, credit union loans were available to EVERYONE.

Our economy is flying and will do so for the forseeable future.

Indeed, it's fairly reliant on corpo tax, corporate welfare and resultant FDI, hardly a sustainable model.

Well its far safer than Construction sector and tax streams raised during the deluded years.
So FG will cancel that planned 100% mortgage interest relief for landlords ?

If the people don't intervene physically in defence of their rights there will be no floor to the depths to which these people descend. These are the political heirs of the castle catholics, of the ones who took power with British guns to maintain the economic status quo, who oversaw starvation throughout the '20s, who ejected the same amount of the population from the country as remained in the country in order to secure their position. There is no floor to which these people will not descend, the people must intervene physically and thoroughly to discipline this class or the results will be greater and greater degradation.

Actually, the biggest source of tax is paye, much of which is generated from the multinational sector which thankfully continues to thrive.

Eoghan Murphy reported on Newstalk as saying the problem is a lack of supply. But why then were 9% of houses vacant in Dublin on Census night?

Whats wrong with cheaper places in Kildare? Clane, Celbridge etc. From 750 per month for an apartment

Good for you that you could afford a rent like that.

How is a property designated vacant ?
It was mentioned in the Census. Correction it was 9%. But thats 23000 homes.

........

The number of empty commercial buildings in the city has fallen significantly and is about half what it was in 2009 and 2010, and vacancy rates in the city centre are significantly lower than those in the suburbs, less than 4 per cent as opposed to just over 10 per cent in suburban Dublin.

Residential vacancy rate
Commercial buildings are unlikely to provide a solution to homelessness and housing shortages, but there is potential in returning vacant houses to use.

The census showed a residential vacancy rate for Dublin city of 9 per cent, which is lower than the national rate of 13 per cent, but the number of vacant homes is still substantial particularly in some parts of the city centre.

Between the canals 8,857 apartments and houses were deemed vacant by enumerators, who called several times to each property in an attempt to establish if they were in use.

In the inner city, residential vacancy rates were particularly high, with districts immediately north and south of the river showing vacancy rates above 20 per cent and in almost all parts of the city centre more than 10 per cent of homes were empty...

8857 people living rough on the streets, disgraceful.


Oh wait, it's not Its 8857 people living on the streets, 8857 people who mismanaged their finances and now live on Government bailouts.

Forgive me if I don't really care too much about the feckless.

Didnt the banks that lended to them also "mismanage their finances" and yet got a bailout from the EU and Irish govt and IMF?

Because he's a BS merchant who'll say anything that suits him.
