    Future King visits Blackpool slum properties

    Just watched William and Kate visiting an Slum HMO on BBC East

    Did anyone else see it?

    Excerpt:

    William and Kate are being shown around boarded up houses in Blackpool.

    The royal couple are visiting the properties that highlight the poor quality of housing in parts of the town.

    Slum landlords had multiple people living in this property (below) until very recently.

    Speaking with council representatives and tenants, Their Royal Highnesses are learning about how Blackpool is tackling housing issues head on.

    His Granny is a Landlord - I hope she is watching too!

    Quite. Always find in fascinating that in this country we condem to high heaven someone who overcliams a few hundreds in benefits but when the current duke of westminster inherited billions without paying a penny of inheritance tax, nothing is said.

    Grosvenor Group puts money into the economy and creates jobs. Benefit scroungers don't, they drain taxpayers money.

    If it was listed to pay the inheritance tax bill would it still not provide jobs (potentially more)?

    As for benefit cheats while i agree with you on those that do not work, plenty of people have been prosecuted for over claiming in work benefits which is effectively tax avoidance on a small scale just under a different name.

    Just find it amusing that in this country we are so quick to shout from the roof tops about amazon and co not paying their "fair share" and small scale benefit fraud but are seemingly blind to anything regarding the aristocracy.

    As they should be, they're breaking the law.

    The Grosvenors are following the law, trusts are perfectly legal.

    Same old 'slum landlord' story tarring us all with the same brush. The stories about rogue tenants who smash up houses, steal white goods and rack up thousands in unpaid rent don't seem to get the same coverage.

    I thought about this a lot.

    I worry that stories of rogue tenants who get away with damages and unpaid rent can encourage other potential rogue tenant to take the leap (light bulb moment) after the weakness of the law gets highlighted in the media.

    If any, I would like stories of rogue tenants being held accoubtable and their future is ruined by CCJ due to intentionally not paying rent and how they wish they did not play the system as it is not worth it etc.

    Very misleading, they were shown round a property that had been boarded up for years, due to be demolished to make way for new housing
