  1. The problem is down to supply and demand. When people were stating their is a problem; instead of policy makers who do not live in the real world looking at the issue. They accused people of being racists now the chicken had come home to roast.

    A landlord who may have choses who do you think they would pick a person on HB or a group of young Europeans? Their lies the of the many problems. Of families couples being evicted.

    If you invite more people you need to build housing; Infrastructure to accommodate them. None does this was done. Now those who are considered to be on good incomes can’t afford rent. They were warn nobody listened

    • Oh yes, too many disabled people (more than 0) for you. As you want to treat people as chickens, as you as ever advocate attacking Britain. As you support discrimination there…

      So, your plan is to isolate the UK. As you talk about the routine bomb threats…

  2. My local council told me to wash in my sink downstairs and refused to put in a bathroom or shower or even attempt to put a lift in so I could get upstairs to the only bathroom I had. THAT bathroom leaked onto electric wires so was dangerous anyway even if I could get to it, not to mention the water damage from it leaking through the ceiling! . I have been in this situation since 2012

  3. As a disabled/sick person my council has fulfilled my needs well. My house is now under occupied and I am having to pay the bedroom tax. The council say they can not move me to a smaller house. However I don’t really want to move anyway. I will just have to keep paying the bedroom tax
