George Moonbat “Lets Turn Buckingham Palace In To Bedsits”
The loss of faith in Climate Religion, and the collapse of the Church of Climatology have taken their toll on George Monbiot.
The Moonbat has wholly abandoned religion and fully embraced Marxism with the same blind faith that had George only year ago believing that our planet was about to eaten by a giant mutant stargoat comprised entirely of frozen CO2.
Sadly the new shift to Marxism makes about as much sense as the Climate Religion.
Moonbat is unhappy about people who live in large houses, alone; Moonbat wants compulsory downsizing most likely on the same floor space model, as that favoured by the tower block builders of the former USSR and other communist satellite states
The issue is surplus housing – the remarkable growth of space that people don’t need. Between 2003 and 2008 (the latest available figures), there was a 45% increase in the number of under-occupied homes in England. The definition of under-occupied varies, but it usually means that households have at least two bedrooms more than they require. This category now accounts for over half the homes in which single people live, and almost a quarter of those used by larger households. Nearly 8m homes – 37% of the total housing stock – are officially under-occupied.
The only occasions on which you’ll hear politicians talk about this is when they’re referring to public housing. Many local authorities are trying to encourage their tenants to move into smaller homes. But public and social housing account for only 11% of the problem. The government reports that the rise in under-occupation “is entirely due to a large increase within the owner-occupied sector”. Nearly half of England’s private homeowners are now knocking around in more space than they need.
So George exactly what is sufficient space for a human being?
After partners die, many people choose to stay in the same house for a whole variety of reasons, or people buy big houses and live there because that is their choice.
Only a Marxist would want to force a size of dwelling on an a occupant, and like all Marxists, Moonbat wants his ideas enshrined in law.
This appears to leave just one likely explanation: money. My guess, though I can find no research or figures either to support or disprove it, is that the richest third of the population has discovered that it can spread its wings. A report by the International Longevity Centre comes to the same conclusion: “Wealth … is the key factor in whether or not we choose to occupy more housing space than is essential.”
While most houses are privately owned, the total housing stock is a common resource. Either we ensure that it is used wisely and fairly, or we allow its distribution to become the starkest expression of inequality
There is the key, most houses are privately owned, and all property is theft Comrade Moonbat.
Be honest George, like the IPCC uses WWF reports to prove Climate Religion, did you use an old script from Citizen Smith as the basis of your article?
