The world ends on july 11th 2012 in the early hours.. or at least I wish it would, as for me thats the day I am officially evicted because of this stupid government screwup where they froze my housing benefits as I couldn’t provide 5 wageslips for working one weekend I was given permission to sign off and work, because it only provided 1 wage slip. There is no miraculous savour for me, no life changing event, just someone slipping away to nothing unnoticed and uncared about. I talk a lot of things in the episode but lets face it I have no energy to fight anymore, a whole week has drifted by where IVe had no energy to do anything, Ive just sat and moped and lost time doing nothing, I dont have the energy to make plans, I just want to die to be honest as it would be over and no more shit to deal with. What good to I have remotely in life anyway, especially after losing my home and everything and everyone I care about.

I wrote to the queen who couldn’t do anything as you’ve seen in another video and number 10 couldn’t even care enough to even give a reply, news organisations want paper trails I don’t keep track of and half of which are between the council and my housing association anyway so I don’t have access to these. I just want to keep my home, but all I get is further depression and less hope. I shouldn’t let new people into my life really, it was a mistake getting close to someone and caring when Im in no state to really socialise on any level.

Ill try to do more video’s before eviction but no promises due to demotivation and lack of energy.

Okay so this isnt a prediction so to speak, but more of a statement on how things should work.

I mean with the size of this country, we are quite a small country, and our population is growing exponentially, we limit the ammount of space that be built on with greenbelts and conservational lands, so that if you want somewhere to live in a city you are limited to somewhere already existing, thus rising prices of houses beyond affordable limits, and mortgage rates, so that nobody can afford them, thus leading to wage increases to be able to afford accommodation etc. Ridiculous right?

So how do you actually go about solving this? we all want our own little house somewhere with our own private space, but what is so wrong with luxury apartment buildings, with decent living space? okay so towers dont have the best reputation due to the fact that they are seen as dirty places where criminals etc live, but rather than having lots of seperate houses, why not have small 3 or 4 story buildings with a decent living accommodation per floor. this would easily make more houses for the space, allowing enough place for people to live and to have all the greenbelts and everything maintained, in big cities especially like birmingham and london, these arent the types of places to go looking for a “house” youre in the city for a reason, towers and flats are the expected so why build normal houses in these places, they are out of place, wasting land driving up prices so nobody can afford to live.

Okay so this may americanise the country a bit but hey we are facing a houseing crisis and this would be an extremely viable solution; and having good quality affordable flats works much better than overpriced small houses which people are dissatisfied with.

Either this or we create a completely new city somewhere where theres nothing, if I had the money or the funding, I could create a great modern cityscape which had a proper city center which was corporate, and decent houseing in decent locations which arent wasting space.

The most ridiculous part of the current crisis is that although you cant obtain a mortgage of £100,000 on a basic wage, if you could your repayments would be less than you are paying to rent a house (or even just one room in a shared house or flat in birmingham city center to be precise) so if the banks would lend me the money I would of course be paying out less to have much more space and my own house… wheres the logic there? And why do they do this? Because if they did lend this amount to everyone there would not be enough houses to go around and house rises would probably quadruple in a month due to the fact that everyone can now get a mortgage on these houses. Its cache 22.

Another really irritating thing is the fact that should there be somewhere £40 or £50k which banks will lend, it will be purchased by some rich developer to do up and make unfordable and sell on to people who can afford much more expensive places. How is that fair to the majority of the population?

I could go on all night about this, I have really strong feelings on the matter, and its just going to get worse over time, we have stupid legislations to block out pretty much anything and stop us actually progressing as a country and having a nice place, all we really need is a cooperative government which looks after its people and makes sure basic things such as accommodation arent priced out of the ordinary persons price brand, sooner or later we will end up with slums on outskirts of nowhere with poor people living sharing the tiniest spaces as that is all they can afford, possibly even box rooms like Japanese culture, where all you have is a bed and thats it, and then the ultra rich living in huge houses wasting space just because they can afford it.
