Spot on. Why are rents, especially in London, so high? Yes it's demand, and this has been driven by unprecedented levels of immigration. However the State sets the benchmark. If the State was willing to pay £1600 for week for the now famous 7 bedroom mansion in Westminster for the Somalis who they moved in, then the price for the market price for 7 bedroom mansions in Westminster is £1600 per week. However once the State moves the bar, then the rest of the market will follow. Rents will fall as they will no longer be artificially inflated by the State funding the benefit claimants. This can only be good for normal working people.
