Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As a small question, who are the landlords in other countries in Europe it local communities? or is it  financial organisations and aristocracy?

The big maggie stimulation was to offer council tennants houses at knock down prices (based on the ammount of rent they had already paid) and use the money that came from this to cut the ammount of grant paid by central government into local councils. That cut was forwarded directly If I understand correctly onto tax cuts for the higher earner.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
