Would this work in the U.K?

I'd have thought there'd be such lines in the sand in place anyway. And when the social welfare safety net successfully rescues those who 'fall through the cracks', you'd reckon they'd put less effort into being an antisocial blight on civil society.

It'd be worth making the point for your UK readers that the public housing proportions are: UK 14%; Australia 4.2%.

Poses a bit of a conundrum though. If they're booted out of Housing Commish digs, they're then sleeping in parks and under bridges. When the credo of the constitution of the Commonwealth of Australia is that we will not have our citizens dying of neglect, what to do with those who are committed to a cuntish, self-absorbed existence?

In the UK they do indeed get shunted into private housing usually very shitty though where they proceed to maintain the standard.

Already have it with some LHA's and councils missus stays on a street which is a mix of private and social housing and had an issue last May with someone in a council house they were put on a 6month bender and told if they fucked up they were out. They also have black lists of people they won't give property to as they are anti social parasites. Some social housing groups have more robust measures than others when dealing with scum. But if evicted its the councils responsbilty to get them emergency accom which will eventually mean a private let and so the cycle continues. Personally if they **** up the should be dumped on the street if they have kids then fire them into care and let them live in a cave or do what the Dutch are planning and create "scum" villages Amsterdam to create 'scum villages' - Telegraph

A wonderful schere we had here for a while was that, when the behaviour of tenants was so atrocious that not even fellow-residents of some shithole housing estate would tolerate it, the Council leased houses in what had been good areas with a decent community, and housed these ratbags there. The official reason was so they would improve themselves by being set a good example, though I suspected it was more because others on their estates were going to burn them out in any event.

Needless to say, all this achieved was to disrupt and make hideous the lives of their new neighbours.

But if they've been booted out of housing commission then there's a fair chance they'd have a hard time getting a private rental. Especially if it's through a real estate.

There was talk of "social housing" made from shipping containers being built and used for dead shits.

I suppose we could put the dead shits in the containers then drop them off the coast of Straddie. They'd make a nice artificial reef and food for marine life. At least the drug addled thieves would be doing at least something constructive with their miserable lives.

Often the real scum get "persuaded" to leave like my neighbour did a midnight flit they werent missed.
The "doors" who thought they ran the estate were eventually evicted, killed in a car crash the poor soljder,murdered locked up for murder :)
No real loss to humanity.

I did an Op Trustee at Heathrow many years ago and noticed on a perimeter patrol a small housing estate that was under the flight path. At that distance they would have been able to read what make the aircraft's tyres were as it thundered overhead. Local Plod informed us that it was where the local council housed 'problem families'. It must have been akin to living on the deck of a feckin aircraft carrier.

3 strikes and your out...

'here is your new home, you will be in here for 93 days.



You will be visited thrice daily to ensure your 'pod' is immaculate, and the surrounding area correctly sanitised.

Each time you fail an inspection a day will be added to your occupation.

Questions?'

Must be plenty of shitty areas to put the 'Iso pods' on. And it would be short term. Give it 6 months and a few documentaries aired during work time and those who would end up in such facilities will get teh idea.

up untill the mid 1970's to get a council house you had to be married , working and have references. After mid 1970's you just had to be homeless and dont give a ****.

In highbury Quadrant half the council places have been sub and sub sub let. People , Greeks Cypriots somehow have managed to buy one or two council houses even though they live in Own private houses. The whole thing has gone to rat shit . and I say that as a bit of a Socialist meself .

A tenant of a private landlord in Cheshire. Drug pushing. Burnt their pensioner neighbour fence and garden she down. Tortured pensioner neighbour rabbit to death. Feed steroids to their staffies. Burglaries. Handling stolen goods. Noise nuisance to such an extent the council nuise nuisance chap resigned in protest at the lack of backing he got and the inactivity and irrelevance of Cheshire Police.

The private landlord used Section 21 to gain repossession. That is because it gives the Judge no discretion other than to grant a possession order. It is if you like a non blaming order and there is no action in it to recover arrears.

The day before eviction the council has to house them and that was done by Dane Housing allocating a four bedroom end of terrace house.

Dane Housing target such houses it seems to only have one neighbour to upset and to make that neighbour an owner occupier and not another of their own tenants to whom they owe duties.

Not long after the family moved in there was a gang of men intimidating the couple the other side of the owner occupier.

That couple did an over night runner. Dane Housing then allocated that four bed house to another part of the same anti social family. A house let to students at the end of the 4 house block then emptied and remained empty. So the owner occupier was between two branches of the same notorious anti social behaviour mob.

Was "Family Intervention Tenancy" used ? No. dane Housing didn't use them they were waiting for other housing assns to take the eexpense of case law re that type of tenancy. Hence Dane Housing tenants got secure tenancies and their previous history was not taken into account in new complaints about their behaviour.

Five years down the line the block of four houses has two empty. The owner occupier sent keys back to Building Society and said auction it and bankrupt me. The student let is still empty. The Building Society found auction sale nigh impossible.

Recently someone on that estate tried to burn out one of the two ASBO families. dane Housing sent round one of their caseworkers to counsel the family over their near burn out experience.

But my moment of greatest disbelief was when the ASBO family was advertising stolen goods on Facebook. And Dane Housing sent out a case worker to teach them how to change their security settings to restrict their readership (sic) potential market and stop it being easy for police to print off as evidence.

A statistic emerged recently that 78% of UK streets have some anti social activity in them.

An ex Crewe copper told me that in 18 years in that area (before Crewe dumped off troubles to Alsager) those ASBO families called police more than anyone else. Every time it looked like their long suffering neighbours were going to have them ... 999. And police go out to protect the ASBO scum.

I had to laugh because the cop thought a posting to gentle Alsager would see his career out tidy. Then it was guess who lives here now ? "Oh no ... "

I recognise the words, but they appear to be arranged in an entirely random order.




Is English your first language, or are you putting everything through Google translate?
