    Mandatory Vit D upplementation in milk / butter / margarine products, IIRC they upped the dosage in the not too distant past as well.
    It is so ridiculously out of step now, it is almost unbelievable.

    From my own, personal observations, based on a 100% rate from an admittedly tiny sample size of 2, I disagree.  If you can sleep for several nights in the same bed with an infected person and not catch it, despite breathing all over each other and the bedclothes for hours on end, what difference is wearing a mask going to make?
    I completely bought in to the initial lockdown.  I did not leave the house between mid March and mid June.  At all.  As I live on my own, in all that time, the only people I spoke to in person were delivery drivers.  The isolation was tough.
    Since mid June, the only places I have been are to are, my best mate's house, my sister's house, her daughter's house, my dad's funeral and to the internment of my dad's ashes.
    I have not visited a shop, I have not visited a pub.  I have done my bit to help stop the spread of the virus.
    However, for all my compliance, I refuse to buy or wear a mask.  I will not go anywhere where I am required to wear one.
    If the government tell me I am not to visit my family, they can fuck off.

    I am between the two camps, but if I am required to wear one - such as when I went to Newcastle on the train - then I will.
    I do not personally believe that the masks will make any difference, but I do not wish to frighten people who are shitting themselves about this poxy virus. Whenever possible, I usually stay in the car and let Mrs XYY go into shops. I'm guessing I won't get a DOSBODS bravery medal for that, especially as I also have a TV licence.
    To be fair, I am more attractive wearing a mask. But if they say we need to wear hair nets, then they can fuck right off...

    No sorry this is fundamentally flawed  because it ignores the two way relationship between earning and rent. If you increase low end wages then rents rise to soak up the new money. 
    There are only two ways to prevent that happening: 1) create a general surplus of housing or 2) have a large social housing provision with fixed rents.
    This is also the reason why housing benefit is such a bad idea, the gov should be spending money on new housing, not supporting the price of private rentals.

    I wasn't defending what goes on in France regarding the social housing, just defending the existence of social housing generally.
    Historically there have always been a percentage of society that it was better and easier to provide social housing for as they simply can't manage their lives well enough to handle being owner/occupiers. It also acted as an indirect control on open market prices and prevented private landlords making money from housing people the state should house. 
    Thatcher very wrongly put an end to this, then immigration multiplied the demand many times over (also in France) , and now we have the current mess where no-one can afford anything much and private landlords make out like bandits.

    You need a £36k salary to rent the above, or a £60k salary + £60k deposit to buy it.
    Therein lies the problem. A landlord can take your £36k salary and leverage it to buy a house at a higher price than you can.

    The mask wearing is to remind people there is a panicdemic going on.
    Without them most of us would struggle to notice.
