Well we are off to our Waitrose Super Store (Half food and half John Lewis) then down to have lunch next to the river at a little reasonably priced resturant we know.

Its hell in North Beds!

Some of the lovely "Lifestyle" properties that were a little further up the road from us!

OK Burt. Here's one.

Children in run-down housing are suffering from serious and prolonged illnesses exacerbated by the appalling conditions in which they live, a report says.
It has found that many are suffering in damp, mouldy and overcrowded homes which are linked to health problems ranging from gastroenteritis and skin disorders to chronic asthma.

OOP's. Sorry Burt. That was from UK housing files.

I can assure you that these pictures are very similar to that i have seen in houses in NZ too. The difference is you are showing pictures of bad state housing in the UK. Burt was showing you pictures of HIS house, in the first ones. Which was not a state house but a private one. I am sure any one can find pictures of bad state housing.
