I find it astounding that people like Boyd Barrett come up with the likes of
An immediate ban on economic evictions and repossessions needs to be introduced, with local authorities empowered to buy homes in such cases, using compulsory purchase powers, if necessary.
Is this not the mentality that got us in this mess in the first place?
So why should i bother paying my mortgage, i would be economically far better off and sure the council might buy it anyway and lease it back to me for a fraction of what my mortgage is anyhow!
How can our neighbours in the UK evict non paying people without the world coming to an end (and with far lower dole to boot).
What if the landlord is treading water or in negative equity and the council does a compulsory purchase order, state enforced poverty?
Everything is expensive in this country because those of us who do pay taxes are funding the entitled mentality of those that don't.
