Greater Manchester Repossessions Bonanza

TODAY the Manchester Evening News reported a 1,000 repossession orders of people's homes. It went on to announce: 'Thousands of families had to be given emergency shelter by charities or councils - and experts warn that benefit reforms such as the 'bedroom tax' will only make the problem worse.' Last year, there were 3,668 cases when the court bailiffs were authorised to forcibly gain entry to homes and change the locks. Altogether there were over 10,000 repossession orders issued by the Greater Manchester courts last year. Don't be surprised if this kind of thing leads to social and political trouble in the years ahead.
