The “Homeless” scam.

I know several people who have played the system by saying they are homeless. They go to the top of the council waiting list. All have been given free council flats and they never work because welfare pays their full rents in housing benefit. The reality is none of these people were homeless they could live in bedsits like I did when I was a student.

Until Councils start giving priority housing to working people then this abuse will continue. Those who work would pay rents and then the councils would have more money to build new homes.  Those getting their rents paid should be made to do community service.

Single mothers and asylum seekers also jump to the top of the waiting lists.
