First topic message reminder :

Did anyone see it? It was a real eye opener.Apparently the amount of homeless people seeking council accomodation has soared in the last few years.

The council are unable to help single adult homeless people,basically those people are simply homeless and can expect nothing,they are advised..to go and rent privately .Considering they are homeless and have no money to pay rent and a deposit i can't see that plan of action working out.

The only people who are helped are those with children and even then they are put in cramped unsuitable conditions,B and B's for the most part.

This was the opposite of the manipulative 'benefit street',this showed how dire and poverty stricken Tower Hamlets has become.People so desperate and at the end of their rope apparently slit their wrists in the waiting room.

This is one of the real plights facing 'modern'Britain today,the homeless.NOT spare bedrooms,or people suspected of benefit scrounging but people evicted without warning or unable to pay rent having no where to live.The council simply will not help them unless they have children,they just have to sleep on the streets.

What sort of system is that?

Well try telling that to many Landlords, who just assume people who are not in work are all the worst those imagineable as tenants..a very biased way of thinking by many of them, when some of these people would no doubt make good tenants and only wish for a place to call home.

Do they? Have you conducted a survey and interviewed all the landlords in the UK then?


Which ads do you see more often..

Two bed house for rent £500 per month, no DSS

Or


Two bed house for rent £500 per month, DSS welcome



The latter will rarely be seen only in cases of the location of the house for rent being in a terrible location riddled with crime and hard to rent out.

You blame everyone else for your own misfortunes, and you slag off people who actually have to pay for your indolent lifestyle.

Read back you stupid cow.

so much aggression and anger

To get back on topic,the programme highlighted the total lack of bedrooms,let alone homes for those in need.So I don't know where some contributors imagine these imaginery homes are,at least in London.They don't currently exist.

I can only speak for my area and landlords don't want DSS,which is entirely their choice.I am not blaming landlords,they can have whom they wish renting their property but their does seem to be a bias against those on benefit therefore someone of no fixed abode and with no money at all has literally no chance.

The idea of inviting a stranger into your home wouldn't work in practice..Inviting someone to live in your own home that you don't know from Adam is dangerous.

And who would these generous bedroom givers be anyway?The only people who tend to have spare bedrooms in their properties are the well to do or couples whose children have flown the nest.I can't see Cameron inventing a scheme where the rich lend out their eldest son's bedroom to a stranger being implemented anytime soon.
