Tax Abuser Of The Week

Recommended Posts

There is a big reduction in fat cat public sector jobs advertised this week. Could it be that government have finally realised that these grossly overpaid posts are totally unnessary? Somehow I doubt it. They are probably all on a 2 month summer holiday.

I am told there was an article recently in the times about public service pay. Apart from having gold plated pensions, apparantly they are now much better paid than the private sector. If someone can post a link to this article, I would be very interested to see it.

All these jobs are just a defensive "ring" around the government for when ****-ups happen. Tony and Gordon can then be seen to take action by sacking some overpaid seat warmer.

Obvious really.....

From the Office of te Deputy Prime Minister (2001)

"The private rented sector has concentrated within it some of the worst problems of poor housing conditions. Although changes in ownership patterns are associated with better quality properties being brought into the sector, the sector still contains, age for age, dwellings that are in a worse state of repair than other tenures. Landlords may be unaware of problems with their properties, certainly many budget only small amounts for annual repair and maintenance. Additionally, small landlords face similar difficulties to home-owners when it comes to diagnosing and remedying faults, hiring and managing contractors.

Two-thirds of dwellings have landlords or agents who consider their property to be in excellent or very good conditions and 97% have landlords or agents who feel that they are able to keep on top of the necessary repair and maintenance work required.

There is often a mismatch between landlords'/ agents' perceptions of the state of repair and the assessments made by surveyors. Surveyors found that more than half of the dwellings (53%) failed the decent homes standard and 11% were unfit.

Landlords' estimates of the costs of keeping their properties in a good state of repair tend to be low. Landlords of more than half all dwellings (53%) are budgeting less than £500 per year to keep their property in a satisfactory state of repair.

Surveyors, in contrast, identified significant numbers of properties (22%) with comprehensive repair costs in excess of £10,000 and found that more than one in ten (14%) required urgent repairs likely to cost £5,000 or more.

Most properties (90%) had had improvement or repair work done on them in the previous five years but the landlords of nearly half the dwellings (46%) reported that they had experienced difficulties in getting work done, most commonly repairs costing more than expected, and difficulties finding reliable workmen or contractors.

My hatred is not toward the ODPM. I don't trust their research 100% (since only conscientious landlords would return the surveys, thereby fatally skewing the results, but I think that kind of research is meant well)

However, it is Hackney in particular that I loath, and the fact that it doesn't have a section to provide help and advice and enforcement of rights to private sector tenants living in hazardous slums ( like properly managed Councils all over the country do as a matter of course to help with things like provisions of fire blankets, gaping holes in the roof and a building with only one locked exit and unexitable windows. Petty stuff like that.)
