Please join us! Or blog, tweet or just spread the word.
We consider this ‘The Genesis of UK Oligarchy’
After all, Genesis’ housing stock was funded by tax payers which this private company was meant to manage. But now, Genesis HA has decided to:
- No longer build any social (read: public) housing
- Only build private homes for sale, to rent at full market rates or for shared ownership
- consider selling or raising rents on their existing social housing stock, once the property become vacant (read: once existing tenants get evicted and/or dispersed*),
|How many eviction suicides already?|
|How many vacant possession suicides already?|
|Osborne's pals sponge off our public purse|

* as evidenced when KUWG member Nygell Firminger committed suicide right after his eviction from Genesis, who then sold his flat for a reported £375K after North London Coroner ruled that Nygell had committed suicide due to the stress induced by eviction.
