where are the dads ?
I'm fed up of paying for other peoples kids.. want kids .. YOU pay for them.. I know of someone who has 6 kids by 3 different women.. and of course on the dole.. why complain about housing ? when it's the rest of us paying.. give the rent direct to the landlords direct to stop people spending it on everything else

The return of the documentary looking at how local authorities deal with a lack of properties and a growing number of people in need of homes at affordable rents, this time going behind the scenes with council officers in Portsmouth. A former naval engineer turns to Portsmouth City Council's housing office for help, having been homeless for nearly two years after the sudden death of his son led to alcoholism, the breakdown of his marriage and, finally, to life on the streets
