It is easy in life to think that you as one person can make little difference – wrong.
Shopping in B&Q for example!
You spend a few or a few hundred pounds on materials for your rented house – possibly one which has been wrecked by rogue tenants. You get to the counter and see B&Q have their little collection boxes just past the till for Shelter, an organisation which constantly hammers landlords and seems to think we are the rogues. This is something we might have unthinkingly ignored.
Well the Landlords Alliance has now begun a campaign to shake us out of this apathy.
We should not give our money to organisations which support those whose mission seems to be to destroy our businesses and livelihoods; whose latest campaign is to get us to house tenants on benefits whether we like it or not, whether they can afford it or not, whether they make riskier tenants or not – whilst housing no-one themselves.
No. We need to wake up and smell the coffee.
So I for one, have withdrawn my custom from B&Q as of today.
I ask them to instead donate to a positive charity which they can be proud of supporting.
There are an estimated 2 million landlords in the UK who with their families and also the people who work for them and shop at B&Q have tremendous consumer power.
I urge other landlords to make the pledge today: ‘I will not shop at B&Q until they confirm they have stopped giving money to Shelter’.
