I agree with you Insight - but the downside will be that many poor unfortunate unemployed souls will be be forced to park their BMWs and Mercs on the yellow lines outside while they sign-on. Of course, there's no fear of the parking fines being paid but the traffic's gonna be murder!
Going back over this thread though...
I was brought up to make do with whatever I could afford whilst trying my best to get to where I'd rather be as and when I could. So, is there anything wrong with that?
I shared a 9ft x 10ft bedroom with my brother and sister until we were 11, 12 and 13yrs old - and we were happy, well turned-out and well-balanced individuals with no signs of Jeremy Kylism about any of us.
At the age of 29, when my wife & I had our first child, we were living in a rented bedsit with a shared bathroom on the landing below - but I didn't have a chip on my shoulder so it has never occurred to me that I may have been a victim of some cruel exploitation.
Back to the application, I accept that some of the windows being split by room partitions is a bit weird but apart from that I think the flats work quite well. But coming from the places I've lived in I would wouldn't I!
