As a long term flat renter I have regularly raged at how we are ignored in the perpetual hoo ha about house prices etc.
We are seen as pathetic creatures like Maggie Thatcher's "30 year old bus passenger" by the media, we have very few practical rights or protections and at whim of landlords and fellow tenants we can become homeless by the weekend, the list of problems is endless (chief among mine is a lousy fridge and a couple downstairs who get up at 6.15 am to shout at each other).
Thankfully and wonderfully Renter girl has written this great piece about the plight of us renters .
Please read it even if you own a house or live in a council flat, it's the only time this year you'll here from us and it might just add to the housing debate. Don't worry we can get back to moaning about house prices tomorrow.
