MORE OF THE SAME

It is a long time since I posted on this blog. Nothing has changed. The misery continues. One miserable day follows another and there will be no respite untill I’m dead. Tonight is bingo night and the common room will be packed with people who do not live here – more of the same. I worked it out the other night that the common room has been used appx 1000 times at night by people who don’t live in Cambridge Court. They have had tea and biscuits and a nice time but not once have I seen tenants use the place day or night. I still have a notice in my window which says . ” I do not want to grow old with bullies” and not one single person has asked if there is a problem. Not one council official , not one social worker ……….

CAMBRIDGE COURT BINGO/SNOOKER HALL

It is Tuesday night in Cambridge Court. Bingo night. As I write this there are at least twenty people playing bingo in the  tenants Day Room/Common Room but they don’t actually live in Cambridge Court. Tenants as usual are stuck in their one room bedsits with nothing to do. This has been going on for at least ten years and there is nothing they can do about it. If any tenant was to go over right now and insist on their right to use the Day Centre the bullies would call the police and the Gardai would be quick to tell the tenants to behave themselves. Dublin City Council go out of their way to protect the bullies and so tenants are on their own. No one is looking after the interests of the tenants……Not the Gardai and certainly not Dublin City Council.

It is a very hot night here in Dublin and I had  my door open to cool my flat down but had to  close the door due to the noise of these people. They were , by the way , enjoying a nice cup of tea made in the Day Centre kitchen from which tenants have been banned for years now. The last time I tried to use this facility the Gardai were called and Dublin City Council accuse me of anti-social behavior.
