The £1 houses and thriving potteries that are making Stoke boom again 23.11.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Dealt seemingly fatal blows by successive governments since the 80s, Stoke-on-Trent is at last starting to recover When Gavin Pierpoint applied to Stoke council to become the owner of a £1 house in April 2013, his expectations were not high. For one thing, there was the selection process to get through, during which he would have to prove not only that he was capable of paying back the loan the council would make him for the property’s renovation – such a loan was a condition of sale – but that he was fully committed to becoming part of a community. For another, he couldn’t quite believe the council would fulfil its promises. Would these terraces, empty for several years, really be renovated to a decent standard? And how long would it take? At the back of his mind, too, were his anxieties about the area. “I’d be lying if I told you I wasn’t concerned,” he says. “The boarded-up houses, the fly-tipping, the squatters; the reputation of these streets for prostitutes and drugs. I wondered how the people who ...

'There were hundreds of us crying out for help': the afterlife of the whistleblower 22.11.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page

Whistleblowers speak out because they feel they have to, often at great personal cost. But years later, do they think it was worth it?

In his former life, Dr Raj Mattu was an internationally recognised cardiologist. On course for a professorship in London, he nonetheless jumped at the chance to return to his home town of Coventry in 1997, to set up a medical school at Warwick University and help turn the large district Walsgrave hospital into a teaching facility. It was a choice he would live to regret.

He found problems straight away. Patient safety was at risk through broken equipment and misallocation of resources; there were factions among staff and tensions with management. In the months before he arrived, senior clinicians had narrowly failed to pass a vote of no confidence in CEO David Loughton. Little was as it should be.

How can you slow the unstoppable rise of evictions? 19.11.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
The number of evictions has more than doubled in a year, throwing thousands of families into turmoil and temporary accommodation. Something has to change The number of tenants being evicted by their landlords is at a record high . Last week Ministry of Justice figures revealed that in the three months to September 2014 more than 11,000 individuals and families lost their homes. According to housing charity Shelter that means more than 40,000 families have been evicted in a year – a 117% rise on the previous year. The reasons for the spike are numerous but nevertheless hard to prevent under current government policy. The impact of benefit cuts and caps has left tenants unable to pay their rent and many private landlords now evict or turn away poorer tenants (or those in increasingly common zero-hours contracts ...

Number of tenants evicted hits record levels as benefit cuts bite 13.11.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Figures show more than 30,000 tenants thrown out by end of September, which social landlords say is due to bedroom tax The number of tenant households in England and Wales evicted from their homes hit record levels in the third quarter of the year, with cuts to social security among the factors leading to more than 100 evictions a day. Figures from the Ministry of Justice show that 11,100 rented properties were repossessed by bailiffs between July and September, the highest quarterly figure since the records began in 2000. In contrast, just 2,805 mortgage borrowers lost their homes. By the end of September, more than 30,000 tenant households had lost their homes, and the figure is on track to be higher than the 37,792 recorded in 2013. The eviction figures do not show who owns the rental properties in question, but recently a large proportion of possession claims have been made by social landlords such as local councils and housing associations , who have warned it is caused by the introduction of the ...

Private landlords to own £1tn of property by 2015 6.11.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Figures show sector worth three-and-a-half times more than 2001, with new pension rules likely to see more money flow in

Private landlords in Britain are set to own £1tn worth of homes by late spring 2015, it was predicted on Thursday, as rising house prices and growing appetite from investors drives up the value of the booming buy-to-let sector. The private rented sector has expanded rapidly in recent years, as would-be first-time buyers have struggled to get a toehold in the housing ladder.

Official figures show that since 2001, nearly 2 million households have been added to the sector and a report by mortgage lender Kent Reliance forecasts that by 2016 the total will have grown to 5 million, representing just under one in five households.
