The headline is “Slum landlords put thousands at risk in squalid ‘sheds with beds’. The slums are the direct consequence of 19 Conservative plus 13 Labour Years.
People living in sheds often pay for a bedbug-ridden mattress, no water, no heating and dangerously exposed wiring which bypasses the meter. This is happening across London. Ealing, Redbridge, Islington, Newham and Brent are notorious for what has become a scandalous situation.
It has been reported that housing campaigners want a crackdown on rogue landlords, but councils, police and the Government are struggling to take action. Struggling to take action? Struggling to take action? Who is in power? The crooks are in power.
For decades the problem in Britain has not been bad governance but lack of governance. Rogue landlords should be languishing in prison. Instead, they are free to continue exploiting and putting people in danger because the idiots that run Britain cannot get their heads together to do something about it.
