Anger over treatment of homeless


Sir, – I refer to the frustration illustrated by Fr Peter McVerry SJ (April 27th) regarding the homeless. Little if any thought or effort has been given by Government to the urgent matter of the homeless. Reckless bankers and developers still appear to be able to enjoy the luxury of privilege while our “beloved” Government ambles on aimlessly. Ejecting our heedless Government leaders and silent politicians of all parties from out of their cosy offices and on to the streets may be a good starting point. Fr McVerrry would bring integrity, honesty and a badly needed breath of fresh air to the Dáil. – Yours, etc,
