Council Slaps Overcrowded People In Face

Is no one overcrowded in council accommodation anymore?

I am surprised that the papers haven't picked up on it more.

A TENANTS’ group has criticised Swindon Council’s move to set up an emergency back-up fund for those hardest hit by the bedroom tax using cash normally reserved for homes.

“Martin Wicks himself asked the council not to evict any tenants who get into arrears. If you don’t collect the arrears from one person then why not collect the arrears from others? The grant system is better than a selective arrears policy.

Mark Tylor, of Shaftesbury House, Intake, has been told he has won a bid for discretionary housing payment, which will allow him to keep his home on for another year. He was helped by MP Rosie Winterton.

His home has rooms which are used by his three daughters, Kira, aged 13, Roxanne, nine, and Ella, six, when they visit. He is no longer with their mother.

I see. Divorced couples can now have 2 houses, both big enough for all the couple's children. That's very nice. And MP Rosie Winterton is paying for his extra bedrooms, righ?

This tenants' group sounds more rational.

There's a shortage of housing in both public and private sectors in the UK;

England is facing a "growing housing crisis", according to a report which estimates a shortfall of 750,000 homes by 2025.

The country needs to build more homes even if the economy continues to falter, the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) concludes.

It found the biggest shortfall would be in London, the South East of England, the East, and Yorkshire and Humberside.

Only in the North West of England could supply meet demand, it said.
