Scorrie Posted March 21, 2013 Report Share Posted March 21, 2013 It is not the young hard workers who are looking for a house near their work you are subsidising, they pay for their house.It is the people who are getting their rent payed by benefits you are subsidising, if they don't have a job to travel to they can stay anywhere.Plenty of buses! Incorrect. Cooncil rents are below what it costs everyone else to buy their house or rent privately. So I'm subsidising your "hard workers". Personally, I have no problem in subsidising social housing for those who are on benefits, providing they are genuine. Unfortunately, I am not in a position to personally vet each benefit recipient - so I do the sensible thing and avoid treating all those on benefits as untermenschen.....
