Knock 'em all down: the Ciaran Cuffe story
Green party minister, Ciaran Cuffe, the same man refusing to reverse the decision to close the Rosslare to Waterford rail line, has said that unoccupied houses built during the boom in Ireland may have to be demolished.
Speaking at the Irish Planning Institutes national conference in Tullamore, Old Cuffey estimated that there were up to 350,000 houses which were unoccupied, and a potential risk to the environment and public safety.
350,000 potential homes.
On the thirteenth of August last year, the Irish Times published a piece stating that the waiting list for social housing had been pushed to a new high due to the large numbers of unemployed young people joining the list. The Irish Times claimed that at that time there were 56,000 people on the waiting list.
So lets do the math Ciaran.
350,000 potential homes that you want to destroy.
56,000 people with no homes.
If Ciaran Cuffe or any of his incompetent, lazy, delusional green comrades get re-elected in the next election, it'll be time for all of us to be looking for new homes...in some other country.
After all, you never know when Cuffey is going come through your sitting room wall in a bulldozer.
