No Room at the Inn

It is completely shameful that a family should be put into bed and breakfast, but to be put into just one room with four children is no more than infestation and, could also source communicable diseases such as lice and scabies, which then makes it a health matter. Unknown

District councils have a specific legal responsibility towards homeless people. images

If any person is homeless or is threatened with being homeless, the council have an obligation to give them help and support.

Councils should be fined if they do not give people the duty of care that they warrant, particularly when there are properties out there that the councils are leaving vacant for months on end before repairing them and, putting tenants back into them, that have been left in bed and breakfast or shelters for months with very young children.

It is not only unsuitable that councils are putting people into bed and breakfast, but it is also a health risk.  Overcrowding causes diseases, which then extend to other people in the surrounding area, which will then have grounds for them to be closed down, as it would do if it were a restaurant or a large hotel. environmental_health1

A bed and breakfast accommodation is a guest house or small hotel offering sleeping accommodation and, meal in the morning, which means that it has to comply with the regulations of Environmental Health.

In fact, have Environmental Health not remarked on Environmental problems where a large amount of people are being housed in B&B because the councils are not doing their job properly?

Government practice is that B&B accommodation is appropriate for families in a crisis situation and, for no more than six weeks, although I know a great deal of people that are often left for seven weeks.

If it is government policy, then why are councils taking it upon themselves to leave people in there for longer – are they not executing an unlawful act?

If this is an illegal act, which plainly it is, or else they would not have been fined, then it should be looked into instead of being pushed under the rug and, the people or persons should be held accountable.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
