Arguement For Claiming Housing Benefit

Recommended Posts

If someone cannot afford to pay for their rent, and are on a low income, they can receive Housing Benefit.

Where's the line drawn as to what is "a low income"? Is it compared to average income?

Should it not be compared to the price of property? Ie, and income of £20000 is still low if average house prices are £140,000 or what ever they are.

Obviously, there's no comparison by being destitute/on the poverty line, but new graduates will almost certainly be in "poverty", with no prospect of benefits.

Should we take to the streets a la poll tax riots?
