What kind of world do we live in when money-grabbing property men can legally force key workers out of their homes?
Even if you do not believe in the humanitarian reasons for providing a roof over the heads of those on a lower pay scale, affordable housing is needed to make sure we have the people vital for running our society.
Prison officers fall into that category,and already many are considering quitting over the Berkeley Homes rent hike plans.
But what really rubs salt in the wound is the gall of the company's managing director to suggest it is okay to increase rent eightfold because they were lucky to have it subsidised in the first place.
