Congratulations to The Guardian for highlighting the extent of the subsidy to private landlords.
Something has to be explaining why private landlords are doing so well, cos I can’t believe it’s quality of provision or service.
I’ve done a rough calculation that suggests pro-rata the tax breaks represent £2,500,000 per year in Bridge ward alone, although it might be sensible to try to get an official estimate than the guess I’ve made with loads of assumptions.
Meanwhile, all those moans about the cost of benefits. A startling contrast.
