There is quite a bit of that in series 4, so it fits in quite nicely really.

Probably. Ive worked in not dissimilar places myself. We had 2 people commit suicide in 6 years where I was working last. And that was when the country was supposedly in a boom.

https://www.theguard...nment-ombudsman Families with stable jobs at risk of homelessness in Britain, report finds

Nurses are among those ending up with nowhere to live after being evicted by private-sector landlords, says watchdog.

Homelessness is now a serious risk for working families with stable jobs who cannot find somewhere affordable to live after being evicted by private-sector landlords seeking higher rents, the local government ombudsman has warned.

Michael King said nurses, taxi drivers, hospitality staff and council workers were among those assisted by his office after being made homeless and placed in often squalid and unsafe temporary accommodation by local authorities.

“People are coming to us not because they have a ‘life crisis’ or a drug and alcohol problem, but because they are losing what they thought was a stable private-sector tenancy, being evicted and then being priced out of the [rental] market,” he said.

 

King said the common perception that homelessness was about people with chaotic lives who slept rough no longer held true. “Increasingly, [homeless people] are normal families who would not have expected to be in this situation,” he said.

The ombudsman’s report came as the latest quarterly homelessness statistics showed another year-on-year rise in the number of households classed as homeless. There are 79,150 homeless households in temporary housing, including 6,400 in bed and breakfast accommodation.

Homelessness of all kinds has increased for six consecutive years in England, prompting a highly critical National Audit Office report in September that said social security cuts and ministers’ failure to get a grip on a “visibly growing problem” was costing the taxpayer £1bn a year.

The homelessness charity Crisis said: “As social housing declines, welfare cuts bite and private renting costs soar, people who were less likely to become homeless in the past are now being pushed further to the brink of losing their homes.”

 

 

That's just depressing. My mum volunteers for a food bank in Kent. They're absolutely swamped. Still, as long as everybody can gloat about how much their house has gone up in value, I guess that's OK.

He did. But he was heavily made up.

I usually shy away from RT and all it stands for, but to give credit their financial expert hit the nail on the head. How do you export a house? :D

You sell it for real money to the Chinese, or to Russians.

Who then sit on it waiting for the price to go up. So central London suddenly starts turning into a Chinese Ghost city, block by block. Well, the fashionable bits anyway.


I suppose we could always start making Prefabs, and export those.

Probably. :D

 

My late father always used to say that the news  back in the 60's and 70's used to give performance of the pound according to steel exports. Now we do it in house prices.  That probably makes sense to somebody, but im still playing catchup.
