Now the Government is making everyone including the unemployed pay 10 percent towards their council tax. I don’t think this is enough for those who choose not to work in social housing. They get free repairs and pay no service charges. The Government should make them pay 20 percent towards their council tax to cover the costs of the council doing repairs and cutting grass and maintaining social housing. Ideally the Government would not pay the unemployed in social housing their full rents as this stops them looking for work and encourages freeloading. I suggest they are made to pay something out of their JSA towards the rent money. People who have worked and have a mortgage have to pay service charges, pay for repairs and only get their mortgage interest paid. Try living on the dole if you have a mortgage those in social housing have it easy.
