Too many growing dope using huge amounts of power, overloading the system, add to that all the ‘single muvers’ watching huge TV’s with Jerry kyle on, brewing coffee and heating going full blast all paid for by tax credits, and it is a scene repeated in every ‘social housing’ areas across Wight.

Keep them closed and get a job, would ease the power outages for Wight imo.

Az-Zahra, social housing should be a priority because the young have no hope of buying their own home these days unless they have more affluent parents that can help.

Yes, I know some people are not what we would call good productive citizens, and make people’s lives a total misery, but I don’t think you should Tare everyone that lives in social housing with the same brush.

However, don’t think for one moment drugs are only used by people that live in social housing, the well-off are the drug dealers best customers, it’s just that the well-off are less likely to be targeted by the police…

Good and fair comments Clare. I know ‘not everyone’ in social housing is like my ‘example’, but, a growing number are.

Certainly the well to do, do indulge in drugs, but I am not bothered what drugs people do, BUT the harm they cause in pursuit of their habits.

The rich don’t mug, steal or hurt others or breed ever more clones to ensure that the next generation has even more of the problems we no face.

Aziz, I take your point, I just wanted to point out not all residents who live in social housing are bad.
I just wish people living in social housing would make the effort to make their environment a more pleasant place to live, but I don’t know what the answer is.

It’s a sad situation, I think housing organisations should lay down very strict rules enforsing residents that they have responsibilitys to embrace there community’s, and report antie social behaviour to housing organisations.

Those residents that are making naighbourhoods a misery should be removed and to hell with their human rights…

Well for once aziz I totally agree!
I’ve worked in social housing as a tradesman!
Well all I can say is wipe your feet when you leave!
As for your comment you’ve nailed it.
