English mega-landlord evicts all welfare tenants, will no longer rent to them – Boing Boing

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.

English mega-landlord evicts all welfare tenants, will no longer rent to them – Boing Boing

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.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Maybe if the welfare office wasn’t so busy writing checks for east asians with four wives and 30 kids or “single” slags complaining that they don’t get enough money for their 10 kids by 10 “fathers”, just maybe it could figure how to take care of the elderly who had paid for the system all their lives.
