It’s so Irish really to have National Socialists on the committee of the local housing scheme who can’t get their teeny little brains around the fact that duplex-over-apartment terraced buildings in suburbia are not the worlds most family-friendly spots in the world. In fact given that they are generally built to rent to young professional couples or single professionals should be a bit of a giveaway to the demographic that resides there. It’s disheartening to see that some of the committee members have bees in bonnets about the fact that there are ‘Tenants’ (ooh such a dirty word) paying money to ‘Absentee Landlords’ (ooh more dirty words).
Notwithstanding the fact that the majority of the population is renting (either from or to) in the estate, these muppets have decided to go draconian on the other people living there, denying them the ability to park, and generally being little hitlers. I’m sure too that these little hitlers are the same ones that are plagueing the clamping company to come out and clamp non-existent cars every night at 2am..
I’d like to see these idiots take a back seat and let the majority of the people that care about living in the estate have their fair say in the day to day running of the estate.
But, this is Ireland after all. When people get a little taste of ‘power’ however ephemeral this may be, they do like to try and hang on like an elderly mangy terrier to a mouldy bone, desperate to have some control over an empty, unfulfilling, lonely life..
By the way, if you *do* read this, I’m not talking about you. You know who you are.
