But there's the "free market" ideology of FG + too many people benefitting from soaring rents. The city suffers as a result - on the spectrum of outright homelessness -> to say, young people starting in a job who hand over half their net salary in rent. The city is broken.
If the government is not very very careful, housing will be the hill they die on. And it will be deserved.
This 30 min doc from 1964 is worth your time. It explains in a quite even handed way the history of Derry, and its Catholic/Protestant populations. It predates the start of the troubles. and was not broadcast for another 25 years. (via @Mark_Coughlan) rte.ie/archives/exhib…
it also features playwright Brian Friel's father, Paddy Friel, and explores the types of discrimination against Catholics at the time (company directors receiving extra votes being one example given)
it also serves as a useful brief history lesson to those who don't know much about the history of British colonialism in Ireland.
