Don't forget Landlords Boris?

If we wind this thread back to Fergus's comment on the PCS and civil servants the disparity between our concerns and their's is patently clear. It is which group is prospering and which strives to survive.

I am acquainted with both unions mentioned. They are split on a workers and managers basis and reflect their respective segments of the civil service. Is the political bias of the civil service a censored topic as yet ? Or is that still to come, along with the present Stalinistic concept of ' political correctness' and other leftie notions of fairness.... Read More

Checks needed for DSS / LHA tenant?

Why bother with all these risks unless you can afford for it to go wrong?
LHA tenants come in many forms but the accommodated by the local council carry the biggest risk. Will the same council issue a bond and guarantee the rent and other obligations?... Read More
