Hi everyone what are people's views on people under occupying there council homes , I no of a couple of people that are over 65 that live in 4 bedroom houses by there self they have to pay no rent the state of the houses are disgusting as they are to fragile to clean the houses they are in surley the council should In force a law that just because these people have lived in these houses for years dosent mean they should keep them they both have 3 spare bedrooms just sitting there shouldn't they be made to downsize ?? To a 2 bedroom or something it's not fair that these young couples with 3 -4 kids have to keep them in a flat with no garden while these oaps can't Evan take care of them selfs properly let alone a massive house !!

'I'm not saying these old people should be chucked out from there houses they should be givern main priority of we're they would like to live for example bungerlos or maisonettes '

Where are all these bungalows? How are they to manage stairs in a maisonette?

Why is it the council's job to provide people with 3-4 children a house with a garden?

You are flaming the posters here for being sad and throwing negative comments out when you joined up and posted specifically to post negative comments about all these ancient, poor, incapable pensioners that you know?

Love that you ask for opinions and don't like it when you get them.

Laughing too much at "bungerlos" to reply.

If, as you claim, your iPhone is responsible for the atrocious spelling, I'd suggest you take it back to the shop forthwith as it's making you look a bit silly.

Bad phone.

In fact, bungerlos is so out there, that the iPhone doesn't autocorrect! Even the iPhone is at a loss to wtf a bungerlos could be!!

But tbf to OP, it's disgusting how young couples are made to live in low-rent housing with an assured tenancy and a free, brand new kitchen every decade or so while they have as many children as they want. Something must be done.

OP do you need a bigger property? Is that the reason you are so angry about oaps in council houses that are too big for them ?

Oh dear! What on god's green earth is a bungerlos?
Please come back and be genually rude to us OP, I've had quite a good day today and it would really top it off to have a good laugh.

Not bad, OP, but you overdid the bad writing. Nobody that illiterate goes near a keyboard.

7/10 for the spoof.

0/10 for the social housing policy.
