Every area of life is a competition and some do better than others. Obstacles to development have been removed and preaching fatalism is a disservice to those who with encouragement would do better.

    @Tom Newnewman: Obsticles to development will not been removed until affordable housing becomes affordable again and banks start to loan money to genuine people to want to create homes for themselves.

    @Chris Kirk: The renters time bomb is not been mentioned yet. Praising the move towards the European levels of renting is another case of media fake opinion. What happens to renters when they reach the “big drop” of life on the pension. A one bed apartment in Dublin costs more than the state pension, and then there are other things, for example “food”.
