The situation is not helped when you get commissioners like Colin Leather in Castletown who vociferously object to means testing for tenants ! not sure why he takes that stance !

He’ll be pandering to a vociferous bunch of shit stirrers in social housing. Onchan seems to be the same. No wonder we never see any form of reform. They’re all too scared of holding on to their ‘important’ jobs to do anything to make people pay their fair share.

Not forgetting of course that any elected commissioner/MHK that pushes means testing through will lose all the votes they crave (and need) so much

Someone once told me that 60% of the housing in Castletown is LA.

However, 60% of the housing in Los Angeles is not Castletown.

Sounds unlikely to me.  Castletown Commissioners currently have a housing stock of 258 according to an answer given to Hooper in January and there are also 42 sheltered housing units - though some of these will be in Malew.  It's possible there is some DoI stock as well in Castletown - though most of their properties are in the Parishes.  But if we take that 300 as an estimate, then it compares with 1434 households in the town in the 2016 Census.  That would be 21% of the housing, not 60% and seems roughly the sort of percentage that the Island has.

Thanks for that Roger.

One thing springs to mind here, one of the Fairy Houses were ironically set up in Skelly's constituency, I have no idea where the others are and if there are any connection with other members constituencies!!!  I am sooo cynical.
