Doesn't matter what benefits or assistance if there aren't enough houses.
Seems only about 10,000 houses a year being built but 35k needed.
Apart from one off houses in rural areas those being built in  economically successful areas are beyond the price of low income and the "Squeezed Middle" so beloved of the Blueshirts.
In normal societies the latter can always afford to buy houses thus leaving lower rents for others and no need for thousands to be living in emergency accomodation .

I know I shouldn't even respond to the Tony but we're not talking about the traditional down and out types only when we refer to homeless these days.
Inflated house prices,  ridiculous high private rents, no social or affordable housing being built,........
But all Tony can see is a drug addict who won't use an emergency shelter.

Yer a great buck for jumping to conclusions.
You have a rant about FF and connections and then ask me to answer your theory.
When I don't play your game you jump to another conclusion.

I've proven my own theory, free stater like to turn a blind eye to the murky dealings of the establishment parties they vote in. Who do you vote for?
Will you be coming round with a baseball bat if I choose not to respond to your interrogation? :P

The alternative accommodation will be usually unaffordable leading to hotel rooms.
We need more affordable houses for first time buyers and more social housing for people who can't afford to buy those affordable houses.
Couldn't the Government introduce a VAT deferment for 1st time buyers and let that count as a deposit for mortgage purposes?
So instead of a house costing  227k incl VAT and the couple having to have a deposit of 22.7k they simply get a mortgage of 200k and pay the 27k VAT at 1,000 per year.

GAA people referring to soccer ball as "football" gets my goat.

I'm sure the 8,300 people in Emergency accommodation in hotel rooms will be delighted that our homeless figures are "quite good"
Until the last 2 years homelessness  was the lot of various poor addicts, alcoholics, people with psychiatric problems -the traditional "down and outs".
Now thanks to spiralling private rents and lack of social or affordable housing "normal" families have nowhere to live.
If that's your idea of "quite good"......
