What a silly comment.


In what way ? I would suggest it’s quite an accurate comment unless you deny that there is a homeless industry here ?
The "homeless industry"? :lol:

That sounds like a bullshit term used by people who know nothing about the topic. Convince me otherwise! Tell me everything you know about the 'homeless industry'.


Its not a bullshit term as has been proven above , educate yourself ;)

No, tell me more about this 'homeless industry'. Seriously, I'm genuinely interested in tying to understand your view on this. What is the 'homeless industry'?

Alice Leahy has worked with the homeless for decades and has a trust in her own name. She herself called it an industry a few months back on the Pat Kenny show, commenting on figures like those which were posted on the previous page.
I mean, how could you read those stats and deduct that it's anything other than an industry!!!

Explain it to me from the perspective of a homeless woman with two kids. Explain it to me from the perspective of the hundreds and hundreds of volunteers who give their time to help others.

I've repeatedly asked you to explain what you meant and you still haven't.

I'll go with Alice Leahy's take on it. She's got a lot more knowledge of the situation than you or me.
I won't get involved in tugging at the heart strings either

Show me a link to what she said so that I can see the context. Was it in the context of the State normalising homelessness and dealing with it ineffectively through corporate management that only cares about moving people on to met statistical targets? That's a 'homeless industry', and it's the result of a government maintaining the policies that are creating the problem. They have created a housing crisis where it has become necessary to deal with the victims with industrial methods instead of addressing the actual needs of people on a one to one basis. That is the 'homeless industry' that Alice Leahy warned about. Using the term as a shitty attempt to attack those in need and those who volunteer their time and effort to help them is pathetic. Perhaps you might do better to focus on the cause of the housing crisis rather than the symptoms of it? But I suppose it's easy to attack the weakest with this sneering bullshit?

The term is a bit pejorative.

But it is perfectly fair to state that there is a proliferation of agencies in Dublin whose task it is to manage homelessness. Between them they employ a lot of people and there are volunteers too.

DCC employs 4000 people - I would presume at least a hundred work on the homeless stuff too.

Personally I really have no idea about how effective the system is. I have never come across a good value for money review or performance audit.

It was said in the context as was outlined earlier, hence why I brought it up here.
So while it may not suit your argument, try not to twist it so ridiculosly to suit your agenda. Or to put words in MsLeahys mouth either.

I'm not sneering about anything. There's more than enough money being spent on homelessness to solve the issue several times over. But as with evertyhing in this country, it becomes a racket with many snouts in the trough.
Anyone who dares question it is 'right wing', 'uncaring', 'sneering' etc etc.

As with the Health system, throwing money endlessly at the problem will not solve it. Your only feeding the monster
