    Marcus, that is unfair, yes it is likely they are on benefits given where they reside, but you cannot link to affordable housing

    Marcus – its rude to say people on benefits. I am on benefits (because of my bad leg) I have five kids and have to survive off £2 grand a month from the tight tories. I live in a small 4 bed council house and my family have not had an holiday for a year. I couldnt afford to drink drive m8
