One of the major causes of moral decay in the UK is the Coucil house allocation points system. Single mothers and those who just say they are homeless go straight to the top of the list. In reality no one is homeless as many could rent a room in a bedsit they just play the system to get a flat of their own. I know several people who have done this keeping their possesions around a friends house until they get a free council flat. These people never work as benefits pays their rents. There is alos a problem with people sub-letting the council homes they have been given. The points system needs to be changed so that working people get top priority especially key workers that have moved to a new area. If the council gave more housing to working people then they would have an income coming in from rents and council tax thus enabling them to build more council housing.
