The local media says we do. But there are empty boarded up houses in some suburbs. I live here, I have observed that if the ferals would stop smashing things up long enough for these houses to be refurbished many decent people could be housed. Some people are the cause of their own homelessness. Fortunately they are a sad minority. I feel for the decent ones caught in the trap.

Thus were born entities such as the Housing Commission in Victoria, and similar entities in other states. Beginning in the eighties, this and many other social initi...

Guess what. I am a Landlord, and I 100% agree with you. I have been saying this for years. We have owner built 2 rental properties. We did it completely out of our own savings, and working 60hr weeks. We refused to do anything more till we had completely paid off a morgage. We charge enough rent to cover costs and allow a small profit, but refuse to accept offers of more money to put people in ahead of others. We gr...
