I am happy to announce that just this morning i received an offer in the post too view a 2 bedroom property that I have been assured does indeed have adequate bedroom space for both me, my partner and kids. It even has a massive kitchen and living room measured by our current standards.
Wont be able to view the property until September(Wonders in horror what the previous tennents have done to the place) but i'm still calling this a win!

Good for you, but you need to understand that not everyone is able to be self sufficiant. You are still thinking in the realms of yourself and that everyone is in the same situation as you.
You're pretty much still saying;
"I can manage by doing this and that so everyone else should, if they can't then they are doing something wrong"
Have you considered the people on both JSA and ESA that have never been able to be self sufficiant becase of an illness or disabilty since birth or childhood. What about the people who used to be self sufficiant but are now not able to be because of an illness or disabilty?
Also not everyone lives in Scotland. Social housing up there us incredibly cheap compared to down London way. A two bedroom flat can average £130 odd a week. So 14% of that is around £18.50 not really just a few quid when you consider the benefits are the same but rents are not across the UK.edit on 9-8-2013 by skitzspiricy because: (no reason given)
