Boris pledges £260m to eliminate homelessness and rough sleeping

watched the Scottish news , they spoke to 2 homeless women , one had children, they didn't like the houses they had because they were lonely. There are bigger issues . There is a social network of friends on the streets. They are entitled to at least temporary accommodation, yet the streets of Glasgow and other towns are full of homeless beggars. We need more honesty about the situation, throwing money at it is only part of the solution. For example , it seems strange that they pay for organisations to advise on homelessness/evictions yet not pay for their rent arrears or deposits to stop evictions or build more rented houses ....

Maybe time will tell, you are more wary and the
bedroom tax still applies here in the private sector.
It is a carry on to get it at all in private sector. It is limited to first come first served, by the council. They are all different, most don't fund full amount and in some areas you have to apply ever 3 months. It is supposed to be time limited. Add to this all the other conditions, I expect the anti landlord attitude will see a lot of us selling. Not worth the hassle.... Read More

Resolution Foundation - 11.2% of population own multiple homes

Money was thrown at you by the banks if you worked, precrash. This gave a false sense of property as an investment. House prices rocketed. There are other reasons the young don't buy. They want holidays, technology, nights out, clothing etc. Many are too snobbish outside London to live in a cheap flat. They want semi detached 4 bedroom homes at 20. In the past many didn't buy , or you got married younger then bought together, starting with small flat. It was harder for single people especially women in the 80s to buy until they realise they were more reliable. So it all took off, with for the lucky ones being able to buy council houses. As for pensions most people don't have large pensions, like public sector/ nationalised companies, and paying into a private pension wasn't done. A lot of people work in retail, offices, warehouses etc were not so well off. We forget this. When you start at a low level pre80, where 75%lived in real poverty , feeling better off doesn't take much, e.g. Getting a phone, car, central heating. Yes many families lived in room and kitchens, privately rented, and not cheap. You even paid for doctor appointment in the 60s. How we forget. Also we have people getting married but keeping there previous homes, and having second homes through default. It is more complex.... Read More
