The Ireland Housing Crises.

ONE
.
Over the next few weeks you are going to be tried PR sold that increasing stamp duty on property vultures (otherwise know as cookcoo funds/investors) is going to have a dramatic effect on cutting down on the property grabbers from their activities. Nothing could be further from the truth. There will be no overall ban on them (like in Germany for example) and the government will continue to not mass build the yearly, minimum, social housing numbers needed – which if they did, would also help to drive down the prices of private housing for sale. No, the government won’t help in that direction either. Too many landlords or property investors elected, maybe? A conflict of interest, anyone?
.
The vultures are prepared to accept an initial higher price for their mass bulk buying – and then pass those stamp duties further on to renters or third handed buyers through a possible further increased rent cost or purchase price.
.
The PR crap that will be spun, will if you look under its FG/FF covers, be exposed for what it is by anyone with a working brain. As far as the vultures are concerned, their property grabbing activities will still be seen as mass profitable. So it will continue…

The next dose of PR spin will be around allowing 30% to 50% of all private property built, to be allowed go to FIRST-time buyers.
A. On the flipside of this, it means 50% to 70% will STILL be up for total grabs by the greedy exploiting vultures.
B. Those not a first time buyer but looking to upgrade, like those living together, starting a family, will be totally forgotten about, abandoned, and not part of the minority 30% to 50% previous figure. They are still on their own to battle against the vultures. Bugger all help there from FG/FF.

The awake will note that bugger all is being said about how one further serious issue is going to be tackled. The issue of those trapped in paying so much high rents that there is little or nothing left over every week or month, to go towards further savings that might make up a sniff of a home deposit. These current generations of fiscal trapped are not – deliberately – being (a) talked about or (b) subsequently helped.

You will note that the FG/FF government is centering its soon to be announced ‘great measures’ on “homes”. Very little – delibertly – is being said about what they are going to do regarding “apartments” that the vultures are still grabbing up as much as possible en mass. The truth is that the FG/FF government is going to do bugger all about this issue. They are deliberately silent on it like they are on many things they don’t want to talk about (expose) and be then questioned on – further exposing them as incompetent and self law breaking on a national and international scale.

*** In a previous lengthy, detailed post, I summary described what really needs to be done, why, and the many advantages to individuals, companies and state, of doing so. In the comment section I will put links to that post – and related others I extensively wrote – if you missed them.
.
This present time is perhaps the most crucial time in the history of our state, to try resolve a mega problem that FG/FF/LABOUR helped create over the previous 5/10 years. If we don’t NOW resolve this issue right, with proper measures and full effort, not half arsed PR window-dressing jobs, many future generations are going to be left up shit creek for decades to come. That’s yours and my children. …And that’s the biggest truth of all.

Note: I leave out referral to the Green Party, as regards part of the present government. They are there just to make up a majority Dail number in my (and others) opinion. Bought off by being given occassional policy crumbs to keep them onside. Otherwise, the other two coalition parties continue to do whatever the hell they like! The Green Party is certainly not keeping them in check. They are too busy on their own betraying the people of Ireland with the likes of #CETA STILL to be rammed down our throats, without a public vote allowed to take place. Something that will also affect our growing generations.

However, it too is largely #RTEcensored. What’s new!
