Vans are ideal residences.:o

Yeah. Id be all for it.

Perhaps they should convert a 'Typical local park into licenced van dweller spaces'? Would do more to solve the housing crisis that any of the political props, (Low IRs, HTB etc)

I doubt the UK has any roads wide enough for such a 'pad'....

Nobody chooses to live in a van in an urban street if they can afford a decent flat.

Young people are being forced into this; they are not the ones at fault.

One of my chums live in a Ford Escort van for one term at university.

Im not in bristol but even in my neck of the woods i am seeing lots of vans kitted out for sleeping and people sleeping in them ie kitted out curtains across.

Most stay a single night others many few days.

They are forcing the young to be gypsies/nomads with no fixed abobe.

The people who typically live in the areas mentioned are full of full on 40-50 year old tree hugging sandal wearing SJWs who brought the local houses dirt cheap in the 90s and got all the prime local non-jobs in the local charities and trusts Bristol is full to the brim of. These people would slit your throat if it meant some child in Africa got an extra meal that day and they could brag about it on Twatter, yet when our own young who are struggling with insane housing costs turn up on their doorstep they get the pitchforks out, like the hypocritical left wing cunts they are.

You are joking. The previous "shit" areas of North Bristol, are full of 70+ year olds who bought tatty houses, when they were cheap. Not cheap now!

I'm not having a go at this bloke who is a responsible landlord but this sounds incredible by today's standards:
 

Quote

 

Originally from London, John moved to Newquay in 1969, when he bought eight properties in the area.

“It was the land of opportunities," he said. "I came down one weekend to see some friends on a boat and a week later I got a list of eight houses for sale. I bought two of them for £500 each and the other six were £250 each.

The story is a load of over-hypred nonsense but this quote just underlines how house prices have got out of all semblance of reasonableness.

You've not been to St Werburgh's, St Andrew’s and Montpelier in the last 20 years then? Full of "right on" has beens who'll bore you to death about climate change then drive off in their 4x4. The local boozers got turned into tosser centers selling overpriced ironically named ale and artisanal £7 cupcakes made with sustainable locally sourced ingredients.

Montpelier is exactly where I was thinking about. It is as you say, full of tossers!:CryBaby:

Don't know how they can afford it. My son had to be in Bristol for an exam at 7.30 on Saturday so we booked a hotel for him.

Parking from 9pm to 7am cost 19 fucking quid! (Reduced for pre booking)

I expect they are currently outside the residents parking zones. But yeah Bristol is a very anti-car place, the local cycle mafia as they are called have their tentacles very deep into the council.

Last few years has also seen lots of tent cities spring up in Bristol. Even tents precariously along the edge of the cut. Naturally the people living in these tents are all young British, all while a seemingly unlimited supply of Somalians, who are good at shitting out children, get first dibs on Bristol's social housing.

Bristol has a special kind of hate for car drivers.

Which is funny as it's probably one of the shitest cities in the country for cycling, in every direction from the centre you've got big hills to go up and the roads are extremely dangerous, too many people not used to city driving plus gridlock a lot of the time meaning drivers often do stupid shit.

I've yet to see a Somalia family in a campervan.
