UK Homelessness

A new research by a cross-party group has found that one in 50 Londoners are now homeless as living costs and rents soar.

The report by the group London Councils warned that the housing crisis is becoming “unmanageable” and called for emergency action from the UK government to help low-income families.

Official figures show that around 22 percent of people in the UK are living below the poverty line as they are getting by on less than 60 percent of the average household income. Anti-poverty campaigners are warning of a catastrophe.

Britain's economy is shrinking and many would say it's on the path to a recession. The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has dropped and inflation has hit record highs. Many blame the UK's economic woes primarily on the situation in Ukraine, but we can't look at Britain's economic situation now without mentioning Brexit and its disruptions in trade

Throughout all of the difficulties that Britons are facing, from the cost of living crisis to the stagflation, the Labour Party has been criticizing the Tories, saying this is the result of 12 years of mismanagement of their government.

The cost-of-living crisis has caused significant hardship throughout the country and triggered mass strikes across various public and private sectors.
