Reaction to Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy's recent comment on Labour's objective on homelessness

By John Walsh, Mar 25 2019 06:23PM

The recent statement made by Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy is outrageous. Murphy states, as shown in a tweet by Hugh O'Connell, that it was "irresponsible" of Labour to pledge to end homelessness after the death of Jonathan Corrie in December 2014.


Firstly, he assumes that homelessness will always be with us - like death and taxes.


Secondly he is deflecting from his own failure to achieve anything on homelessness or the housing crisis.


Last, but not least, he misrepresents the position taken by Labour ministers in the FG-Labour government which he supported - this was to end long term homelessness, surely a reasonable objective.
