Being a suspicious person in general, I have most certainly considered that... But he's one of my little bro's best friend's and my brother has assured me it is exactly how it seems.
He made some money from a painting business, then jumped onto accommodation for international students... Smart idea really, since its extremely hard for international students to be leased rental properties, so they're prepared to pay good money for accommodation.

Without that society I wouldn't have been motivated to start my businesses and employ people as well as pay business taxes into the system.
Now if we had Socialism I wouldn't bother to work if I didn't have to because I would have no motivation to do better than the minimum needed to get my Government benefits.

This maybe off subject and I apologise if so but it is a good point about the future.
I firmly believe that in the not too distant future that human nature is going to evolve to the extent that the 'dog eat dog ' mentality is replaced by a more sharing and caring will to do good deeds.
