And the other problem is the people who paid a fortune for the nice 3 storey houses will see there investments dive because of all the low life who will be in the apartments.
are you fo real? thats the only GOOD thing that will come of it. anyone who bought a house at those rediculous prices in the last few years was either greedy or stupid. most likely both.
not eveyone who gets dss is a lowlife. its that attitude that has caused the housing problems in the first place. if landlords werent allowed to refuse housing benefit (and technically they arnt) there would be no shortage of housing. some moron buying 5 flats, dreaming of all the free money, but not interesting in renting to people who really need somewhere to live. screw em. now at least they are forced to be reasonable.
not defending the blocks of flats of course, property developers need a good shooting, but like anyone who buys a flat.. well i already said it.
