Another article to galvanise us to get out there and make a noise about homes for people, and not for greed and profit.
Speaking to our local MP over the weekend about the March for Homes and he is coming too.
Wet, and cold, but definitely well worth the effort this afternoon. The March for Homes was well attended and good humoured too.I am wary of large numbers of people and emotive issues, which the basic need for shelter is, but I need not have worried.
Boris will no doubt smirk and make jokes about the peasants with their pitchforks. Predictable stuff which we are tired of. I would like our elected represantatives to take the housing crisis seriously.
I am all for more council housing - I live in a council house myself - and for people to be helped, whatever their circumstances. However, I don't like the term "bedroom tax" - nobody is being taxed here, it is a reduction in benefit paid. That's not to say I agree with the reduction.
