Communism is collapsing in once-great Britain (they’ve run out of OPM to spend), and the usual crowds of panties have been rendered into damp wads.
Dan Wilson Craw, a spokesman for campaign group Priced Out, says he is dismayed to hear Wilson’s announcement: “Evicting tenants because you’re suddenly upset about new government policies is unbelievably heartless, and could lead to more people deciding not to claim benefit for fear of losing their home, and sinking further into poverty,” he said, “This is just one symptom of a wider housing market that is simply not working in the consumer’s interests. The instability and poor conditions that private tenants have to deal with would not be tolerated in any other market.”
Welfare recipients aren’t “consumers.” They are beggars living on the (usually forced) largesse of others. As for the tolerance of the market, the market will tolerate an amazing number of things – except for ignoring it. Markets always, always, always win those battles.
