24 May (Part 1) - Shocking or what?

As far as I can judge from the available statistics, rather fewer than 50% of regular Bonkers’ readers follow BiB on Twitter so maybe some readers will not be aware of the debate about the future lettings policy of Orbit Homes for their remaining Erith tower blocks.
Probably I have led a sheltered life but I found the following statistics to be absolutely shocking. Around 20% of the dwellings house criminals.
The new plan is to restrict the occupancy rate for the “economically active” to 50% of properties and “prolific offenders” to no more than 20%. Is that very different to how it’s always been?
