You're just stereotyping people as feckless because it panders to your prejudice, in the same way that migrants were scapegoats. How about some compassion. After all, baby-boomer landlords are suffering terrible cash flow problems as a result.

If people are struggling to pay the rent because of loss of earnings that is fair enough..because these are un mitigated circumstances.

However if people get into debt because they choose poorly on what they spend their money on that is wrong
YEAH ADMINBOY - because if you didn't know, your role in life is to be a slave to the elite, get into as much debt as possible for which they will charge you a sh*t ton of interest, pay your taxes and die. Don't you dare spend money on Sky so you can watch the match at the weekend after a tough 48 hour week you LAZY FECKLESS SOD. Removed

Social housing is terrible, give poor people something for nothing. All we've ended up with was ghettos and crime hotspots. The lazy underclass need to get off their gyro's and into the labour market.

No word of a lie, my friend is in the process of selling her BtL house as the current tenant needs somewhere bigger.

Leicester City Council (we're looking at you "Sir" Peter Soulsby!) actually advised said tenant to squat in the property once her 6 month notice period was up!! Absolutely shocking! This is advice coming from an official of a Local Authority. What hope have honest Landlords got??!

Which is why there should never have been a change from the rent being paid directly to landlords in the first place.
Indeed - the sort of person on bennies receiving HB aren't really the types that can be trusted with money, especially when that money is given to them for free. Removed

The expansion of the reserve pool of labour and associated persistent high net immigration is the primary driver of both low wages and high rents.

Selling ones wares for the market price in a market economy is not "parasitic" - off to Venezuela for you.

The causation of suppressed wages and increased rents is oversupply of labour and overdemand of accommodation - i.e. persistent high net immigration and the expansion of the reserve pool of labour.
Landlords are lazy parasites, not businessmen. Removed

There are plenty of safety nets out there to help people, furlough being one of them.
This is just a case of people living lifestyles on the never never, living way above their means and not thinking about tomorrow. This is the consequence for spending instead of saving.

Two sides to the coin.

We need honest, decent and respectful landlords.

We also need honest, decent and respectful tenants.
