Joe - Nail, head, hammer hit. It is ridiculous that you can be rewarded by finding yourself lower standard accommodation, and pocket £60 per month into the bargain. Either that or it should be made avaialble across all tenures and landlords - so, my mortgage company should give me £60 per month when I find a cheaper product, RSL tenants should be given £60 per month when they switch landlords or move to a property with a lower rent, and private tenants should also benefit by the same amount when they change landlords.
Economic crisis? What crisis - doesn't seem to affect public spending!
