Whirlpool washing machine recall - Tenant compensation?

I have one of the Whirlpool tumble driers - also apparently likely to catch fire - in my own home and I have been fighting now with Hotpoint for 3 years to get the damn thing removed and my money back! They are the most disreputable bunch I have ever had the misfortune to deal with and their Customer 'Service' is the worst I have ever encountered.... Read More

5 Reasons why a Boris Tory win is great news for property investors

Reply to the comment left by Richard Adams at 14/12/2019 - 13:43Oh Richard you are so right, I am very disappointed with the outcome of the election. But the vast majority of those eligible to vote - or even of those who actually voted - didn't vote for the selfservatives tho' did they?
Because of our first past the post PR system we are all stuck with the government that a MINORITY of our citizens selected - and after reading the manifestos (did you?), I am frankly terrified of the implications for democracy of P48 of the Tory offering, under our current 'leader'. We may never have the opportunity to vote again if some of the changes that are hinted at there are passed into law.
You are right; I am definitely feeling 'glass half empty' about this result, because I can see no reason at all for optimism.
I am desperately sad that Johnson, who surely no-one can deny is a racist, misogynistic, arrogant homophobe, not to mention being a deeply unpleasant, incompetent lying buffoon, now has a mandate to do more or less what he pleases and I do indeed despair for the future.
I see no indications in his past performances to reassure me that he believes his decisions should be based on what is best for his country, rather than on what is best for his party's billionaire donors.
As for the expert's predictions of the past 3 years about Brexit you poo-pooed, I'm pretty sure that those we've not seen yet materialise won't take long to rear their ugly heads now.
I am indeed a proud Socialist and, despite your inference, I'm not in the slightest bit reluctant to 'come out' and say so.
I'm a Socialist because I was raised to care about others; I want the NHS to succeed, I want education to be back in the control and under the guidance of those who care about our children and their well-being, rather than being owned and run by bodies concerned only with the profit they can extract from it.
I care about the sick, the disabled and the homeless and I had great hopes of a chance to change the way this broken country is run.
However, when history shows what a disaster this was, I will be able to say to my children and grandchildren that I tried my best to stop it.
Still, to mix a few metaphors here; the show's not over til the fat lady sings, so I just hope that now Johnson has been given enough rope to hang himself, things will somehow work themselves out before we all go down with his ship... Read More

5 Reasons why a Boris Tory win is great news for property investors

All of the above presupposes that this will be an effective government, rather than a dictatorial shambles led by a clown. It also, of course, assumes that Brexit is achievable and if it is (a really big if in my opinion) that it will be a good thing, rather than the totally destructive national catastrophe that so many experts have warned us of over the last 3 years...

A2: (remember I asked WHO does provide homes if they don't)
Shelter
Denise Geeves Councils, housing associations, local authorities, private landlords, especially those who are willing to have tenants who receive housing benefits while the people we help get back on their feet. We and the people we help are incredibly grateful to these providers, but it's sadly not sustainable in the long term. What's really needed to ensure that EVERYONE has a home is for the next government to commit to a mass social housebuilding programme. We've been campaning on this issue for nearly a year and we're really pleased to see parties committing to this in their manifestos - but we need ALL parties to commit.

If you agree we'd love for you to sign this petition, demanding the next government #BuildSocialHousing: http://shltr.org.uk/gww

Remember and share thee three questions I've attached - they're to ask your local candidates and party representatives.

And email your MP using our simple tool, to ask what they're doing to end the housng emergency: http://shltr.org.uk/hvd

We can fight this together. Alex @ Shelter

The 3 questions are:
1: What will you do to increase the number of social homes being built?
2: What will you do to help ensure the welfare system helps prevent people becoming homeless?
3: What will you do to support private renters?

so, do I have a third (polite) question for the Facebook page, or do I quit now?
Last week in our shopping mall I was approached by a gentleman, representing Shelter, inquiring would I like to do something to help prevent homelessness.
He looked quite shocked when I (politely) said: "No thanks I already do my bit; in fact I already do way more than your lot do ... because, as we both know they don't actually house one single solitary person"... Read More

Q1: Hi - can you tell me please how many homes you provide in a typical month?

A1: Shelter
Good afternoon Denise, thanks so much for getting in touch! We're not currently a homes provider - we're able to help many more people but operating in the way we do, and who knows, one day we may be in a position to be able to provide homes.

In the meantime I'd love to show you some of the work we're doing on the frontline, working hard to get people into homes.

Here's a link to a video about our work with people who experience street homelessness in Birmingham, getting them into work and training to be mentors for those in similar situations: http://shltr.org.uk/hpm

And here's a blog about our Housing First program in Manchester where we work closely with people to help them off the streets, into homes, and offer continued support: http://shltr.org.uk/hpn

I've also included this video of Rhys for you to watch. We're currently gathering the stats for our work with entrenched rough sleepers, our peer mentor programme, and Housing First, so will be able to answer your question on specific numbers of people we've helped into homes in the coming months - watch this space.
Thanks again for getting in touch,
Alex @ Shelter

Q2: so who does provide the homes that are needed then?... Read More
