Northern Ireland’s vulnerability to sub prime…

George Bridge’s article on the regional vulnerability of the UK housing market to the vagaries of the credit crunch and how that it is likely to play into the hands of the Tories over the next few years. Ominously, in a regional of Norhtern Ireland, the risk seems to run from medium to high risk. According to a follow-up in today’s Daily Mail, Gerry Adams’ west Belfast constituency is the tenth most vulnerable in the UK (with 59.4% of households at risk). Mark Durkan’s Foyle constituency not looking good either.
