Here you go, more proof that Northern Ireland is moving forward…cough….

Nine out of 10 future ‘new build’ homes in north Belfast should be in mainly Catholic areas, the Housing Executive has said. Current waiting lists show 74% of tenants are from a Catholic background and 26% are Protestant.

  1. If the Housing Executive is going to be building new houses then they should be built in areas where there is a demand for them.

  2. Best let the market decide, in that case, rather than the People’s Housing Commissariat.

    Exactly.

  4. The gummint is way overinvolved in housing there. Which probably has made the problem of sectarianism worse over the decades, more hard to solve in the long term also.

    Having the government as ones landlord should be an unusual thing in a healthy society.

  5. It does make me laugh to see one of the few remaining defenders of unionist majority rule suggesting that housing policy might be sectarian. The Northern Ireland state was founded for the purpose of institutionalised sectarianism and housing was one of the main sectarian planks in its sectarian policy.

    Surely the sectarian thing to do now would be to build empty homes in areas where they are not needed just because Protestants live there behind their sectarian walls with their drums and their sectarian bonfires. Building where there is population growth us the reasonable policy. Belfast is becoming a Catholic majority city. But it will not ever be a Catholic city in the way it was a Protestant city.

    The republican values of equality and fairness will prevail and it will be a better city for it. Just like Derry.

    I’m so happy to read this. For years I believed that Prods were not welcome in Londonderry, Northern Ireland’s second city. I just don’t know why I spent the last forty years worried about republican values. I mean Marty’s values of equality and fairness apply to everyone.. don’t they ? Even if you you are not Nationalist or republican ?

  7. I’m opposed to any and all “government” housing….full stop.

    Let Capitalism and the free market place drive the economy.

    Can’t afford a mortgage to buy a house then rent.

    Can’t afford the rent, Ok, Allow the people to receive a small government subsidy, but mandate its use to rent on the open market.

    Over the years I’ve observed that anything people are given they take for granted. Look at the NYC ghetto housing for example. I look at Ballymun, Tallaght and Finglas and Limerick’s Moyross “government housing projects” and the evidence is there. Slobs don’t care when they get housing hand-outs.. So let them work out their own lives. It just might instil a little responsibility in the Social welfare parasites.

    Nyc public housing is not that bad

    If you ate caught selling drugs or as. A sex offender on the grounds you are banned from visiting or living. There for life

    That concentrates the mind excellently

    But yes government does not need to be a landlord
