Government approved mortgages under strict conditions for people working 5 years or more, why can’t this be done you literally pay the government to build you a house, 500 or 600 euro mortgages.

    @Dean Burroughs: Indeed you would think that being a guard or nurse would be grounds enough for the banks to want to lend money to buy a decent home for yourself.

    @Jay Lane: Everybody wants to have something for nothing and pay nothing into society it seems. Why is it only homeowners pay into local services through LPT and not everybody else.

    @Jay Lane: also remember the Government takes around 50% of the rent the Landlord receives which by inference is a 50% tax on the money the Tenant parts with. There are three sides to the story here.

    @Bob McTanned: Dead right Bob.
    The Elite v. The Poor is in actual fact just code used by the whingers in our society that can be directly translated to the The Do’ers v The Lazy Layabouts.

    If you are willing to work like a dog for a while in this country you can really get places. (waiting patiently for someone to say “why should I have to work like a dog to get places”)

    Larry don’t confuse poor with lazy. Some people may be poor because they’re lazy, or drinkers or time wasters, but many many more work hard to make ends meet. There are also a lot of very well paid lazy people out there who disparage the poor with that line. They don’t describe themselves as lazy because they suffer the L’Oreal effect and think it’s because they are worth it, because daddy put them through Trinity or UCD and they end up in a parasitic profession . I hope you are not one of those.

    @Greg Blake: Really confused response there Greg. Even on minimum wage, you can clear €400 a week outside the cities. Work hard enough and that increases. There are plenty of rentals for €100 a week. Add in household bills and you are at the magic 33% of income mark. Get over the need to own something, be a good tenant, be a good employee and most times good things happen. Yes, the cities are difficult to survive in, but for the size of our small country, I cannot for the life of me figure out why people cant move outside the 2/3 major cities.

    Also, the multinationals right now want people to work from home, and are actively encouraging. There has never been more opportunity.
