Apologies, but with search function still FUBAR there's no way to resurrect one of twenty related threads, but THIS just caught my eye....

https://www.independent.ie/irish-news/taoiseach-warns-colleagues-of-snap-election-threat-over-housing-crisis-37008320.html

So confident in Eoghan Murphy and/or so happy is he with the current status of housing in Ireland that Varadkar willing to risk a roll of the dice if people try to hold Murphy to account for his abysmal performance in housing (unless, of course you're a landlord, REIT shareholder, land owner or developer, that is).

So - our Taoiseach is threatening to throw his toys out of the pram because our elected representatives are beginning to wake up to their responsibility to the citizens and you think that's not worth a few posts on an Irish political discussion board...interesting.

I just did and it makes for interesting reading - a blast from the past:
  • the SiteServ inquiry they don't want anyone to know is actually occuring
  • FG finally admitting their daft policies are making homes unaffordable

But it still doesn't really pull up the real thread - Eoghan Murphy's performance in government and let us discuss why the Taoiseach would be prepared to risk an election to make people stop looking for someone better to do the job.

Added in the key stakeholder there who have driven up rents.

FG are learning the hard way that you can’t be friends with everyone. As did FF and Labour before them.

FG can’t be friends with both the property owning class, and the entrepreneurial/business class. Business in general wants cheap access to the factors of production - i.e. land.

There is no point boasting about low taxes and rising wages - as the poster “Hammer” here does - if the money is beingeaten up by rents.

If FG don’t get their act together, they’ll only have themselves to blame when Mary Lou Mac Donald is eventually invited to speak at IBEC conferences.

Surely he is just giving the electorate a chance to vote for a new Government if that is what they want ?

What will SF IRA do to solve the "crisis" ?

So be it.

Yes, rents are too high.

FG is now the 'social issues' party, they don't tackle the hard stuff.

Fine Gael, the party that enacted all of Fianna Fails policies and worse! About time they merged into the sewage in the middle!
