        No I really mean that. If your landlord is selling up or moving his kid in, that’s not eviction. How many are getting evicted for not paying the mortgage? How many for anti social?

          This is a fair point. It seems you can not pay your mortgage for an eternity before you lose your house.

          being turfed out by your landlord is eviction from the point of view of the tenant, regardless of the landlord’s supposed motivation.

      Anything which saves lives should be lauded
      – banning smoking?
      – 30khp speed limit in build-up areas; 60kph in all others?
      – don’t remove the ban on abortion?
      – close all chippers/fast food joints?
      – restrict alcohol consumption?

        Ok let me reword as you appear intent on nitpicking. Anything which saves human beings from dying on the streets during the winter months should be lauded.

        Are we good with that or would you like me to step down another level?

    Well human life appears to be cheaper than you would hope in this country so not sure if it would even be considered?
