By now you’re probably sick and tired about today’s Budget, so how was the budget greeted in Dubln’s Fatima Mansions? Tonight Vinny is out and about to get local recation to today’s Budget and how it will impact on them.

As you will see if you click on the above photo, the ‘set’ is up and tv3 are all ready to go. All we need now is for Vinny to show up and some locals to be vocal for a show. Haven’t been told that any ‘names’ will turn up, but you never know. This has been a long day … very sleepy now.:|

Are they the homes at Fatima Mansions ?

They have a lot to be grateful for, compared to what was there previously.

I would say it will be a very positive show :)
If I were you hammer, I might skip this public meeting if you've a fg sticker on.

Not a worker or a taxpayer will be seen. And they'll all have a big whinge about how their handouts are being cut.

Last time he presented from here he found some wan who moaned about being poor and having no money.
She had two teen boys and she was giving them a tenner a day each for living expenses. 140 a week- nearly 8000 euro a year for gags, breakfast rolls and cans of lilt.

Faced with a cash shortfall she took to the national airwaves to bemoan her lot.

So did Comrade Vincent move to Fatima Mansions after he had to sell his house in Dalkey when the 'Village' magazine went bust? Is that why the show is coming from there?

Absolute right wing stereotypical nonsense.
"the level of unemployment in Fatima in
2004 at 39.3% (source data: Dublin City Council
Rent Assessment Unit), remained stubbornly high
at over eight times the national level"

Remember 2004 was the height of the Celtic Tiger, a time when we were importing hundreds of thousands of foreigners, many with no skills who couldn't even speak English but could find a job.

But 39.3% of people in Fatima still managed to be unemployed.

It'll be the usual whingefest from the "most vulnerable", who get their dole, free housing and medical cards paid for by the hard work of the rest of us.

I wonder will Vincent ask tonight's panel have they any conflict of interests. It was his latest wheeze last Monday night, but so far he has only asked Constantin. Needless to add, he hasn't told us what outside financial interests he has, although I understand that he has a large shareholding in a bare knuckle fighting and sulky racing enterprise based in Bohola.

Don't be silly. I wonder will he drive or take the Luas?

Sure, I bet the residents will up in arms about the property tax and having to pay PRSI on investment and rental income :roll:
