Whilst all and sundry have been beating on about the dirty trick of stopping Child benefit to high earners, another leviathan seems to have come amongst us unmentioned, with far more far reaching repercussions than child allowance. The lowering of the mortgage interest pay rate. This is the amount of interest they will pay to homeowners on benefit. A mortgage of Â£62,000 would at present rates get an interest rate payment of Â£71.40 per week or about Â£309PCM. The new rate would realise around Â£149PCM. The actual interest would be around 250PCM on an average interest rate mortgage. So a shortfall of about Â£100 or more, is now about to happen to thousands of unemployed homeowners. As houses are hard to sell, when a glut of repossessed home hit the market it will aggravate an already precarious position. If the repossessed then claim rent allowance at an average of around Â£70/Â£80 per week this will increase the government spending bill by millions compared to what they would have paid before the cut in relief. Also a small problem arises when the Private sector landlord will not accommodate unemployed tenants. As there is already a shortage of council houses, it begs the question where will the people live? Are we about to see the start of shanty towns in Britain? Why are we still paying Billions in aid to countries like Pakistan who although they can afford and maintain a nuclear capability, cannot feed or house their population. Why does charity always with the British begin at someone else's home?
