Tens of thousands of low-income families in inner London and other areas of high housing demand will have to move to the suburbs,
This is an effect of the benefit cap and the lowering of housing benefit.
And can you imagine the horror of it all? Neasden? West Norwood? Surbiton for God\’s sake?
My God the Tories are baby eating bastards, aren\’t they?
Tory officials said: \”The ultimate effect is that some people will have to move to less expensive areas, but that is fair since if their working peers cannot afford to live in central London, why should a workless family be allowed to remain?\”
As I\’ve said before, those screaming about \”the cuts, the cuts\” don\’t seem to realise quite how that sort of thinking resonates with the majority of the population.
London is going to be a bit like Paris, with the poor living on the periphery. In many boroughs in inner London in three or four years there will be no poor people living in the private rented sector
