I do not understand homelessness.It was never a problem in my young day,yet money was scarce.Addicts were committed to appropriate institutions to receive treatment and often "signed in" by their families,contrary to their own wishes.

It all boils down to living within your means.

There are two reasons for homelessness as I see it,addicts who won't seek help,and people who have proved they cannot manage their finances to keep a roof over their heads.

More houses for people who are incapable of dealing with the responsibilities of household management doesn't seem to be the answer.

Being brought up in the county, I knew of men who slept in hay sheds or the back seat of old vehicles. They would try to get casual work on farms, but never begged. Any time they came into money it was spent on drink. Some snipers on here may not know, but beggars would have been moved on by the police.

Its hard work attempting to step over all those who have fallen over themselves to make abusive and inappropriate comments to a board member, who they feel is abusive and makes inappropriate comments.

But anyway, I just read this very sad and unusual story about a 70 year old Irish man who seemingly burst into flames on a street in London. I'm sure there is a very logical explanation but at the minute emergency services are struggling to explain what happened. RIP - I hope his family get some explanation for it all.

Its great to see, a great initiative, fair play to all involved.

Totally agree. This is a helluva lot better than having some MLAs argue our case with Leo, who might see them as a threat.

I also think that this proves a confidence among nationalists which never existed since the Protestant Parliament was first set up. Twenty years ago nobody would have gone so public.

Did Cheggers' hosting of a nude game show do his career any serious harm?

This was the best piece of news that I have heard in years. Finally, the Dublin government are going to stand up and look after the rights of northern nationalists who have been annexed in the occupied six.

Leo's acknowledgment is at the very least comforting, considering the remarks of certain west brits on this here message board.
