Only just realised?
This is the baseline model for London. You can get 600 a month HB on a per room basis. Even a two bedroom house switches to three single occupancy (or double) rooms. That flat, you could fit a family in there, two kids sharing a room, but they wouldn't be able to match the rental costs. Truly this is a scandal because the government is maintaining a price level that they themselves arbitrarily decided, while at the same time switching provision from health care and education to keep the money flowing.
