Why am I not surprised that this country is one of the only country's in Europe to allow this? Could it be that, you know, the governing classes long since ceased to govern for the majority or could it be that so many MP's are also landlords?

while it's still allowed, i have to give some credit to the government (first and last time) because with the deregulation act 2015 they did tighten up the law around section 21 so that landlords who have failed to give their tenants prescribed information/failed to protect the deposit properly/have had an improvement notice served on them for the condition of the property, and several other requirements, can't use section 21.
ultimately though, it is still no-fault eviction - there is no defence in law to a correctly served section 21. we see so many of them every year. landlords don't use section 8 on rent arrears or other tenancy breach because as long as the fixed period of the tenancy is within 2 months of expiry, they can issue a section 21 with 2 months notice and don't have to prove the fault in court. it's a pretty broken system.
Do not scrap the promised pensions dashboard, a website that would help millions of people keep track of their pensions
Why is this important?
The Welfare Secretary Esther McVey wants to "kill off" a new government website which would help millions of people keep track of their pensions throughout their careers, because she thinks it's not the government's job to help. Without it millions of pension pots are at risk of being lost.
According to estimates by the Department for Work and Pensions, 50 million pension pots will be lost by 2050 without an official website to help workers to keep track of savings through their careers.
The website has already been successfully tested, and was due to be rolled out nationally soon. It's all the more urgent because new laws to boost pensions have led to 9 million workers being automatically enrolled on to workplace schemes in recent years.
A huge petition signed by thousands of us will show the government we expect them to keep their promises and continue to roll out the pensions dashboard.
I’ve seen the news that Virgin Care has been awarded £2 billion pounds of NHS contracts in the last few years. As if this wasn’t enough money, your business has also made millions of pounds worth of taxpayers money, by suing our NHS.
Enough is enough. Will you publicly commit to ending your approach of dragging our NHS through the courts for even more money? The British public wants the NHS to be spending money on healthcare, not costly court battles.
Alternatively, don't use a business owned by that sponging b*st*rd J. Bezos. Duly signed mate
This sponging corporate parasite really makes me piss. He wants his staff educated to a minimum standard, paid for by the public purse. He wants them to get to work on time using roads maintained at public expense, if they're sick he wants them made well by a publicly funded NHS, he needs customers all benefitting from the same things. It's just the thieving f***er doesn't think he should cough up to contribute to the cost.
Aided and abetted of course by a Govt of charlatans who think that corporate socialism is f***ing brilliant whilst maintaining that peasants will only respond to a kicking when they're down. A Govt that would dearly like to change the IR35 rules to make it increasingly difficult for people like me to earn a living as a contractor. Whilst I acknowledge that there are some contractors kicking the arse out of it and claiming to be contractors when they should be considered permanent and therefore benefitting from tax breaks to which they should be not entitled, they are in a minority and fiddling HMRC out of a fraction of the amount that Amazon and their ilk are defrauding this country. And I mean God forbid that pointless f**kwit George Osborne should have his inherited fortune removed from the trust currently hiding it from the attentions of HMRC.
For f***s sake, we live in a country where it's estimated that the parents of 4m kids can't afford to feed them a healthy diet with all the subsequent consequences for them and the services of NHS when they will inevitably need it and still our mealy mouthed political leaders spout mindless platitudes in defence of this iniquity. Sorry, rant over but come the revolution these tw@'s want propping up against a wall!
