LL's Blame 10 yr Increase in Homelessness on Benefits not LL House Hoarding HPI

Recommended Posts

Well it's not wholely that but it is related. It was reported in 2016 that homeless rates had doubled since 2010 - when the blues got back in and immediately started to cut housing benefit entitlement.

The councils should be able to block evictions in cases where benefit cuts or delays are a factor IMO.

I don't really blame landlords for this. I reckon it's lots of EU immigrants who turn up trying to get work (farms, factories, hand car washes etc) who end up unemployed and on the street. In my neck of the woods all the homeless and street drinkers (may be the same folks) are white. Tells me theyve come from uk and/or EU.

How about the several million in legal and illegal immigrants, and more to the point, is £40 Billion every year not enough in housing benefits when the UK has the so called employment record in living memory. Why are none of these many many political commentators not picking up the government on our huge welfare bill when according to them there are jobs for all, so many in fact that we have to import "badly needed work skills"
