A third of Londoners can't afford decent living standards

192 posts in this topic

A third of Londoners cannot afford the extra costs of paying for housing and transport in the capital, according to a new report.

Research for the charity Trust for London and Loughborough University showed that for some Londoners it costs about 50% more to have a decent living standard compared with the rest of Britain.

The research suggested that food, travel and rent cost a single person £410 ($636) a week to live in the centre of London, £130 more than the UK average. These costs included housing and childcare

The study also found that housing, childcare and transport costs in London had risen sharply since 2008.

Trust director of policy and grants Mubin Haq said: "The very high costs of housing, transport and childcare mean one in three Londoners are struggling to live a decent life, especially families with children.

Why would the 'lefties' be happy with lower living standards? Or were you being sarcastic Thun?

Because you dont know what a ''leftie'' is. It is a spectrum you fucktard, 

 

You don't know ANYTHING about politics, your opinion on anything is worthless and you attach yourself to an underdog cause because it makes your empty life feel like it has a real purpose.

They wouldn't but Thun doesn't know what he is talking about so he is unaware of that.

You wanted lower living standards as you promote distribution of wealth which is a myth so this is what you get

You thought England getting poorer would mean wealth being distributed lol, more has just gone to the elitists

Only so far that can go.

Not leaving this city. Im hopefully in a position to buy within a year with the sibling, the recent sacrifice in lifestyle will be worth it. (Better be).

They pay £1,528 which I consider silly prices, their other two housemates pay £950 and £850 respectively as they have smaller rooms. The house is nice, off a quiet street in Streatham Hill. But they could be putting that money into a deposit.

London is becoming a city for the wealthy. 

 

We are living under Neoclassical Economics. 

 

And for some reason the media keep harping on about Gas prices going up yet nobody can afford a home lol

 

London is basically becoming a trap. London offers you hope but in reality you get fucked.

 

We need to teach ourselves how to live within our means.
