Channel 4: Get a House for Free

Recommended Posts

This should be carnage. Tuesday night a benevolent landlord literally 'lords' it over poor people to give away a £120k house from his £25m portfolio. 

Also to do it on national tv, in an almost X Factor type format just illustrates the modesty of his 'charity'. 

Even if he crumbles and gives a house to all contestants....I don't see him coming out of this very well. 

Guardian comments makes me realise I may not be the only one with reservations about whether this is a good idea ?

They should make the final so the last two have to fight to the death to see who can have a roof over their head. Think of the ratings!

I foolishly clicked on the property tribes link - good ol' Vanessa is a real peach - 'I have actually had the pleasure of working with Rod on a TV project and filmed some interviews with him at the Dorchester'. Utter waste of skin.

Be funny if I wasn't sure the property ramping TV wouldn't like this kind of show...

Stop watching the mind rot, it'll be the best thing you'll have ever done.

 

Thats pretty much exactly what the bread knife has just said.

So many state benefits, support and opportunities available to the 18yo girl.

Although I'm finding it difficult to watch this utter ego grasping moron of a landlord giving his house away "for charidee", I couldn't help but point out the hypocrisy in this statement:-

"There's so many people just like her - hundreds of thousands in fact - that will never have the chance of saving a deposit to buy a house because they're stuck in rental accommodation because nobody can afford to buy a house because of supply & demand"
