I thought that councils were supposed to use the cash from the sale of council houses to sitting tenants to build new houses to rent. The bed and breakfast stuff is that not just for the homeless - quite strict eligibility criteria there so cardboard boxes all round I think or the good old model lodging houses will make a big comeback.
Question...with a future increase in the population and some reports of 5 million extra by 2030.
So with not enough houses for the requirement of the current population if affordable and many are not...
How will the problem get solved or will it just get worse as affordability ebbs away to more people......
Will it mean and more 3 bed house have 4 to 8 people living in them. or a reversal to rebuild high rise tower accommodation blocks everywhere or more councils paying for more bed and breakfast accommodation.. And when interest rates rise.. probably after the next election it will no doubt will create more housing issues.. and not forgetting Renting is now also now becoming a growing unaffordable problem in some areas..
What are your thoughts......for the housing future ..
Hi Guys, it's nice to find other geriatrics on the bill-board. Pep Clarke and Downtown...woohoo. I'm with Neep - No Change just for Change Sake. Likewise, I want Politicians who understand how effective doing nothing can be. Think Ken Dumbo Baker (We must do something) with his rubbish Dangerous Dog Act, which is a load of sh'ite. There were already laws to cover being bitten in the bum by MMs.
Morning Neephead, I thought you had been trying to get people to defect from the misery of rbs to Johnny River's land of milk and honey with Michael rowing the boat ashore to barc or at least trying to get them to see the light to opportunities elsewhere. barc's did promise increased divis which haven't materialised yet in the Q1 statement so my caution expressed to you was warranted. You acknowledge that fully yourself now by having sold up there before said divi carrot which you thought was going to be greater was delivered but well done on your return though it is fitting to note on here that it was probably much less than you were expecting and quoting on here and you are not hanging around to bag the divi. Anyhow there's nothing worse than off topic than people giving plugs for other shares on bbs in my view.
Morning Brigadoon - nice to see some fresh faces on this bb. They do like to give newcomers a hard time. Just loaded up the car to go away for the weekend and have found a Petula Clark cd in there maybe in mono. Tony Hatch and Jackie Trent were very underrated as writers coming up with gems like The Other Man's grass is always greener. atb.
Re your post 13.52. A bit below the belt. As I recall I very quickly acknowledged that my spreadsheet hadn't updated on barcs dividend. I took your chide and also my profit when I sold my barcs holding a few days later, so, thanks. I think my other half might still have her Johnny Ray 78s but I wouldn't know where to find them. He was somewhat behind Louis Armstrong and Benny Goodman in my charts.
Re your post 11.21. Believe me I understand all of your arguments, however, what I am suggesting is that it is better to argue to make good better than it is to tear down everything that we have and demand that everything changes. I am old enough to look back at years and years of change for the sake of change. Many things that were good were got rid of for no good reason. For example, I grew up with the trams in Glasgow, a fabulous service. many other cities had trams and also got rid of them. Now I live in Nottingham and am witnessing a phenominal expenditure on the reintroduction of trams to the City!
Re your 08.54 post. Not my argument, my point was simply that this Country has so much good in it that it is no wonder people from other places want to come and have a better life. That said, the same applies to Brits moving to France, Spain, Australia, etc..
