|Northern Ireland estate votes NO to transfer
Tenants voted 90 per cent NO in a vote on transfer of their homes to a housing association.
The Grange estate in Ballyclare, Co Antrim, overwhelmingly rejected the proposed break up of the NI Housing Executive, through privatisation of homes.
Tenants were supported by the NIPSA trade union. Paddy Mackel of NIPSA says: this result is a powerful message from citizens that they arent easily fooled by empty promises, or scare tactics. This result is also about much more than the courageous decision by local residents in Ballyclare. It is a direct challenge to government to halt years of neglect by the state.
