Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Irish Independent has published a follow up letter supportive of mine yeasterday:

Successive cabinet ministers clueless about the issues (Second letter down)

FRANK SCHNITTGER is yet another voice (in the wilderness) about the interminable housing crisis (`Tax on vacant properties could solve housing crisis', Letters, October 27). If only this were the true reason behind the failure of the three cabinets since 2011.

I am at a complete loss as to even attempt to understand the mindset of any Irish government minister when it comes to housing - a basic human requirement.

It would appear that each and every member of every Irish cabinet since 2011 was clueless of an iota outside of their own department, which then begs the question as to why they deserve to be in office.

If Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael are so obtuse on housing, they will be six months out of office after the next election before they realise Sinn Féin are the government.
