We are being fleeced with huge rents because this government is letting landlords do what they please.
Four members of cabinet are landlords, as are five Ministers of State. Nearly one-third of members of the Fine Gael parliamentary party are landlords.
One in three Fianna Fail TDs are also landlords.
They have a conflict of interest when it comes to legislating on rents. Yet none of them stood aside when People Before Profit proposed measures to curb rising rents. They voted against.
On Friday May 24th you get your chance to vote out the landlord parties.
