SINN Féin has been accused of trying to open up a “class war” after the party’s finance spokesman claimed “posh boys and girls” were devising the Government’s housing policy. Pearse Doherty said Fine Gael TDs don’t understand the struggle facing people who are trying to rent or buy a home. “The reality is those of you on the government benches will never have to struggle,” he said. Tánaiste Simon Coveney defended his party’s efforts to solve the crisis, saying: “When you get into the space of name calling and try to get into some sort of class war debate, than I think quiet frankly that’s proof that you are losing the argument.”
