    Default FG cllr claims lack of trampoline space reason to decline social housing

    People dying of hunger in Africa, yet now it seems that trampolining should be considered a fundamental human right here:

    Evening Echo — Family refuse council house because no room for children
    A FAMILY on the social housing waiting list refused an offer of a council home because there wasn’t enough space for a trampoline, a Cork County Council official has said.
    ...
    Cllr Neville said a family could legitimately refuse a home on the basis that there was no space for their child to take part in a hobby such as trampolining. She said a garden was a very important part of a home for many families with young children.
    I've heard it all now. Seriously what planet are the people from the "entitlements culture" living on ?

    A chap has a right, "given Ireland is a country in which there is plenty of land, to have the space to stand outside his house and look back at it to see if it has been painted properly."

    I knew FG pro-trampoline policies would come back to haunt them.

    Are you saying this won't provide the bounce in the polls, they were looking for?

    If they don't want the house, thats fine.

    Just throw them at the back of the list and move on.

    I think this is a politic issue with some bounce.
