Whilst it is understandable the Govt would still be seeking to generate further ideas to cut public expenditure a distinction must be drawn between those ideas that are necessary to meet the Govt's target (whether you agree with that target or not) and those ideas which appear ideological in roots, and nothing to do with the current objective. This clearly falls into the ideological category. As such therefore I would expect it to be opposed by the Lib Dem half of the coalition. I would urge those Lib Dem Supporters who read Inside Housing to start the process to bury this idea.
You cannot have a situation where you can guarantee that EVERY person under 25 would still be at home or and could not leave home until they have a job. I am not proud of it but I was forced to kick my step daughter out of my home she being a returning student (which today will not be uncommon) due to overcrowding in the family home. How will these proposals help this situation even if the homeless person in such a scenario goes into hostel accommodation?
