SHELTER / HOUSING
Everyone needs somewhere to live. Politicians talk about 'affordable housing' but don't seem to understand much about what this means.

This has come about because most of the population is learning little more today than they were 40 years ago and the price of housing has increased substantially, whether it is house ownership or simply renting.
