: I think there is a way to stop homelessness and its to do with people having properties to themselves. There are 1000s of peoples houses all over the country with spare rooms.

There are also thousands of empty houses, going unused, because the landord isn't letting them because they can't realise the right rent. Lets try filling up those, before starting billeting people in others' homes.

Homelessness is a *necessary* feature of the rental system. nice try though.

: that would be fair, what say you comrades?

No, because that would mean forcing people to live together who may not get along, lets just stop some epople profiteering buy buying houses they won't live in and giving them to those as have non- or building some new ones...
