Your all in it together!

Homeless families living in B&Bs reaches ten-year high

The number of families living in B&B accommodation after losing their home has reached a ten-year high. At the end of June, there were 56,210 households in temporary accommodation – a nine per cent increase. Of these, 43,090 included dependent children or a pregnant woman. ‘Homelessness has no place in the 21st century and I am determined to ensure we return to the good old days, when it was more than double what it is today,

  • Excellent news! A massive boost to the B&B industry, creating yet more jobs and employment, reducing welfare bills and increasing tax receipts. The service sector is rapidly expanding etc etc.

    Goergon Osbrown is playing an absolute blinder here. I must rush out and buy a couple more houses.

  • @mark – you might be better investing in companies that sell tents, caravans and build extensions.

    In my traveled the uk UK in the last week I am horrified at the damaged caused by the UK’s poor planning policy. Many small villages and tows are severely overcrowded, minor roads are severely over capacity. Outside of these small areas that are thousands of acres of land lying empty.

    I had been wondering about the link between the pollution in these high density areas and cancer?

    Anyway some of the tidy litttle housing estates I know have been turned into shanty towns with awful extensions and back gardens built upon. he UK housing policy is a disgrace, no wonder the UN is making some noises.

    It is deliberate policy of the British government to impoverish people and make them homeless – It is well within the governments power to ‘allow’ everyone to live in a comfortable environment. After all they don’t have to do anything except stamp yes on a piece of paper allowing more dwelling to be built. Enough Yes stamps will automatically provide ‘affordable’ housing for the masses.

    More importantly I strongly believe that the UK needs some new villages and towns building in strategic areas.This would reduce the overcrowding, homelessness and provide ‘sustainable’ living in spacious environments that are energy efficent unlike 99% of the UK’s crumbling housing stock that is unfit for human habitation.

  • If 80% of those homeless in B&B’s are single women plus children, is this not an indictment on a social welfare system that encourages single parent families and taxes stable families to the gill? Is it not a result of some of the horrific sexualisation of culture, including the visual display of pornography on shop shelves where children are present alongside no attempt to stop this on the web, and this destroys people’s natural instincts to form and nurture a traditional family unit with them instead constantly heading from one fling to another, completely incapable of forming stable relationships, because when those urges are associated with fornication at an early age, people are then incapable of associating those urges with family making at a later age, because they have been re-wired.

  • Hmm, yes well… Not sure about that, I think a sense of community has much to do with it. Here in the west of Ireland you would be very much looked down upon (by the catholic community) for being a single parent or having kids out of wedlock.. It’s all very old fashioned but seems to work quite well here.
    I think the sense of community is intact due to the lack of foreigners and the fact that almost everyone (except us) goes to the church once a week. I think it brings the community together and everyone is visible. Cant see that working n the UK with 30% of people speaking different languages had having the own church.
    Not so keen on old stone buildings and fairy tales myself, perhaps something else is needed in the UK to bring people together – the pub used to be a fairly good place, but nobody goes there these days, where the pubs here are still quite busy for a bankrupt country.

  • libertas – you need to change your name to convertitas! When I was a teen, hiding porn from me would not have prevented me from objectifying women. I know this because it was and i did. And i have a family now. Getting over adolescence and getting older offers some perspective, I find.

    khards – ‘You’re’ is a contraction of ‘you are’. ‘Your’ is something else entirely.

    Khards, your Irish sojourn seems to have given you new perspectives on stuff.
