Charity Calls For Housing Benefit Allowance To Match London Rents

Recommended Posts

Yes good plan, remove another incentive to work.

Yes indeed- ever increasing rents is as good a way as any to extract wealth from people- and if that extraction requires a wealth transfer from taxpayers to landlords via HB then all the better- the state is a far more reliable source of rental income.

Can't be arsed registering. Which esteemed charitable organisation with the brightest minds in the country came up with this most ingenious and worthy proposal?

Is there a case for tapering HB and linking it to the minimum wage?

Abolish it. Put people in council housing instead and charge them peanuts. No different to the current situation - the claimant gets housed courtesy of the taxpayer - except landlords don't get free money and the feedback loop which pumps up average rents is broken.
