450 Housing Excecutive Jobs To Go In Northern Ireland

Recommended Posts

The public sector in UK needs to be half it's current size to be sustainable. I am not talking about the NHS, Polics, Fire or Coastguard. It's the Civil Servants the Director's of Equality and other tax burdens that need to go.

Very worrying since a large % of people in NI are employed by the public sector.

Could more cuts like this be on the way?

I'm with Bumper Graham on this one (what a GREAT name!) - sounds like a character from a kids TV program.

It is unbelievable that at a time when half the population of Northern Ireland are about to be repossessed that they cut the numbers of staff providing essential services to them.

I for one am willing to pay double what I pay in tax at the moment to keep these, and all the other public sector workers we depend on, fed and watered.

It is not true that I currently pay no tax.

Don't be daft. Do you want 3 million people out of work. We have to pay for them one way or the other. Better to pay them £400 a week and have them pay tax and spend the money in the economy than to pay them to do nothing and join the black economy.

I think we should double the public sector at once.

In fact, why not get everyone working for the public sector. That would solve all the problems - and all the money made would go to the government (i.e. us) instead of to the business owners.

It depends. We need to be building more social housing as I expect that the housing problem is probably going to get a lot worse. If they are cutting jobs then how are they going to build more or manage current stock. You have to realise by the end of 2008 most people won't be entitled to mortgages and if you look at what is happening to the private rental market then there has to be a better social housing programme.

Isn't the principle of communism? Not Marxism, I think, maybe Trotskyism? Stand to be corrected by politics or history scholars. It can work, IN THEORY!

I don't even know what the housing executive is - so I looked on the website, and frankly I fail to understand why the Government feels most of this stuff is up to them. Words like encourage, consult, examine, all sound like lots of expense and no output. I bet they travel round the world to compare notes.
