national / housing / press release Friday November 11, 2011 15:43 by PAW   image 1 image
Former Minister for Defence Willie "The Kid" O Dea, today failed to answer questions put to him by the People's Association Watchdog in our weekly email to all TDs, Ministers and an Taoiseach, among the questions put to Wily Willie were "Will you stand up for the people or take the cushy favours of the financial industry? Are you afraid to stand up to the banking sector? Have you asked how much money they got to cover mortgages in the bailout? Are you willing to see the demise of your country when you can take a stand?". The Banks Robbery of the People of Ireland appears to be going totally unchallenged by Willie, I wonder are his constituents ignored and disregarded in this manner by this "Gentleman". Below is our latest (unedited) letter to the TDs Ministers and an Taoiseach and Willie O'Dea's unedited reply. read full story / add a comment
national / housing / news report Monday October 24, 2011 19:46 by PAW
The People's Association Watchdog recently sent a letter to all TDs with a proposal regarding mortgage debt solutions, to our dismay one of the replies received was from Minister Howlin's Office to say "As this is a matter for the Mr. Michael Noonan T.D., Minister for Finance your email has been forwarded onto his Department for attention and direct reply." Has Minister Howlin forgotten the Keane report already? He is minister for Public Expenditure and Equality and his department had the 2nd highest amount of participants in the Keane report. It would appear that Minister Howlin is doing a Pontius Pilate and washing his hands of all the distressed mortgage holders that are being sacrificed at the behest of his banking masters. read full story / add a comment

Recently in the picturesque village of Ballynagore, Co Westmeath, the local Council at a cost of €40,000 took the decision to demolish 3 bungalows that where close to being fully constructed, in what is now purported to be the demolition of Ireland's first 'ghost estate.'

The 3 bungalows had been left lying idle for quite some time and while there is confusion as to who the developer is, the neglected homes had quickly fallen victim to vandalism and had become somewhat of an eyesore to the residents of Ballynagore. read full story / add a comment

“Office Of The High Commissioner Of Human Rights
The right to adequate housing (Art.11 (1)) : . 12/13/1991.
CESCR General comment 4. (General Comments)

Habitability. Adequate housing must be habitable, in terms of providing the inhabitants with adequate space and protecting them from cold, damp, heat, rain, wind or other threats to health, structural hazards, and disease vectors. The physical safety of occupants must be guaranteed as well. The Committee encourages States parties to comprehensively apply the Health Principles of Housing 5/ prepared by W.H.O which view housing as the environmental factor most frequently associated with conditions for disease in epidemiological analyses; i.e. inadequate and deficient housing and living conditions are invariably associated with higher mortality and morbidity rates.” read full story / add a comment
