    Can’t stand the term ‘Ex Pat’.

    They’re not British civil service staff in the Indian Raj, all sitting around sipping Pimms on the lawn.

    They’re dirty EMIGRANTS.

    Talk about the completely obscene scenario that sees builder/developers/construction industry trying to turn a homelessness crisis which they created into another bonanza? This time round they’d like to build ‘modular homes’ for the same or more cost as to build an ordinary home. Despite the 198K empty homes, 36k of which are in Dublin. There is no shortage of houses. 7.1k homeless, a lot more on the housing list but even if we gave a house each to every single person on both lists, there would STILL be a massive glut of empties. Peter McVerry Trust is holding a conference on this very topic today – possible person to speak to is, surprisingly, Fine Gael’s Fergus O’Dowd who thinks the empty houses are a scandal. NB the 198K does not include holiday homes.

        An Empty homes tax is applied with relative ease in many jurisdictions and cities – Scotland, Wales, Vancouver, Barcelona, Paris etc.

        Irish attitude oh it’s bit tricky let’s no go there. Empty homes aren’t the nice clean new build sites you see slapped all over the papers. They take effort and need to be done up unit by unit. They do offer the most sustainable solution to the score housing shortage in urban settings.

    You feckers…
    You silly commenter, egotesticles…

    I just caught the last 5 mins, so I’m no authority on anything… but Mike mentioned something about music…
    …right at the end…

    And if you want some Nigerean/American Hip-Hoppy stuff… you could do a lot worse than this…

    I cry every time.

    But seriously, anybody who has the balls to go on BOTV has bigger balls than me, and mine are massive.
    Anyone else should shut up.


  6. Look@yourself...seriously

    You children…
    The ones who shout and think you run the school.

    You are the funniest, by far.
    I love you.
