Housing bosses on + £100,000 salary

Housing maintenance grant budgets are being cut. Major investment in social housing is urgently needed to meet the housing needs of ordinary people. We are told there is not enough dough to go round. Well, if you happen to be a boss of housing associations, there is plenty to go round.

It has been revealed that seven housing associations, notorious for raising rents, pay their chief executives more than £100,000 a year! The combined chief executive salary budget across all housing associations in Northern Ireland stands over £2million. This does not include bonuses and the provision of expensive BMW’s and Audi’s. But they don’t need to worry, the Minister for Social Development Alex Attwood has said he will deal with this by proposing a “voluntary” pay cut for top earners – that will get ‘em shakin in their boots for sure Alex!

Now that the Tories have taken off the mask and appear as they truly are, the outcome of the election is much more uncertain. A certain swing back to Labour, especially amongst working class voters, is clearly discernible.
