    I think housing benefit is a moot point if you cant find anywhere to rent or a landlord that will accept someone on jobseekers, no matter what age you are. most no all the adverts I see for rented property state "employed only".

    It's not moot. It is annihilation.

    Your generation did not stand for it.

    Moot..My arse....It's capitalising, protectionism in action. It's the enslavers pushing and pushing for the sake of seeing how far they can further exploit and suspend disbelief....It's a pisstake.

    How would things have gone for you if you hadn't received a council property to dwell in?

    my generation didn't leave home until they got married and had somewhere to live.
    I didn't get housing benefit until 1980 when the 1st wife and I separated, I was in my mid 30s by then.
    if I hadn't of got a council place I would have had to rent privately, which I already was when I applied.

    My mothers friend bought her council house for twenty something thousand pounds and sold it last year for just under a half a million. How has that been good for anybody? (except her of course)

    I could never get my head round right to buy, what was the sense?

    The big thing about housing lists is that people should not be allowed to queue jump, first come first served

    "Moot"? Are you having a laugh? Are you deaf maybe? What planet have you been living on? Clearly not a near on homeless one.
    Moot?

    Life must have been hard for the previous generation with their:

    • Abundance of social housing
    • Free university
    • Rent controls
    • One wage being able to support a whole family and pay the bills.
    • Unionised workplaces
    • Cheaper housing
    • Being able to buy their council house for dirt cheap, and then sell for a massive profit.
    • Jobs for life
    • Final salary pensions
    • Golden handshakes on retirement
    • Being able to retire at a decent age


    Seems a lot of people in the previous generation got onto the prosperity ladder and then pulled it up, so the next generation could not have the same opportunities. Every opportunity the previous generation had, has been slowly taken away from future generations of people.

    That is all absolutely true, where did it all go wrong ?? back in the day I knew a girl who was a dental nurse and bought her own house in Manchester on her own. And the same year she bought it I met her on a Greek Island on holiday. So she wasn't even cleaned out buying the house.

    None of that would happen today.

    I bought a house on my own at age 26 in North London despite having a pretty rubbish job really. Today it is worth well over half a million (i'm not! by the way) I sold it two years later and made ten grand, thought I was in the big time.

    Should have kept it, rental value alone would have paid for it twenty times over and would now be a mega pension for me to live on

    My mate Colin was a trackside electrician for London Underground. When he died last year of cancer I was involved in sorting out some of his estate, selling his bikes, he had dozens, Harleys, Triumphs, bantams etc

    I was shocked to learn his pension was over 40k a year! yet if you saw him you would have thought he didn't have a pot to piss in.
