Private landlords raking in taxpayers’ cash for housing vulnerable people in squalid and dangerous conditions

Campaigners say the lack of oversight means vulnerable people, including domestic abuse victims, care leavers and refugees, are seen as “financial commodities” and placed in properties where there are no safeguards against exploitation by other residents, or requirement to make sure they are safe and clean.

Whole article is shocking...or should I say it's not actually shocking, it's actually not that surprising...that's the worrying thing.

(p.s.  don't forget, it us the tax payers funding theses private scumlords who are charging the local housing associations top whack so they can exploit the vulnerable... you almost couldn't make it up)
