This is the 5th housing minister in the past few years. Does anyone really take the issue seriously?

It's like health you'll never win, build a load of houses where land is available and the would be tenants will shoot them down as for some reason when being given a gaff you can chose your postcode.

They have been in government for years, excepting when the Assembly has been out of action.

Simon Coveney's 'plan' 'Rebuilding Ireland' has made things worse in housing.

http://www.irishtimes.com/news/irela...says-1.3123922

Dr Rory Hearne, a postdoctoral researcher at Maynooth University said Rebuilding Ireland, the Government’s policy for tackling the housing crisis is “worsening the situation”.

“Rebuilding Ireland is almost completely reliant on the private sector to deliver 134,000 social housing over the period 2016 to 2021,” he said.

“Policy needs to prioritise the provision of housing as a social necessity and a human right rather than as a speculative investment asset.

“This means secure and affordable homes are prioritised within housing and economic policy ahead of interests of the property industry, real estate investment trusts and wealth equity fund investors. The human right to housing as a home needs to be implemented.”

Simon doesn't have the intellectual wherewithal for complex briefs like Housing. He will get rings run around him in FA as well.

The poor fella is well-meaning but just a bit thick unfortunately. The type of fella your nan might describe as "harmless".
