Landlord scum clean up on the Olympics.

Some people are lucky enough to end up in a satisfying and rewarding job that they really enjoy but for others wage labour is a grind;  a daily misery that has to be endured. For such people the prospect of self employment  has the appeal of making you "your own boss" and offering some (albeit limited and largely illusionary) freedom. But going into business, which is what becoming self employed involves, comes at a price. Hard decisions will have to be made regarding ones relationships with other members of society and it's not easy to be an entrepreneur and a nice guy. Another alternative is to get enough money together to buy your way into the landlord class, and the same tough decisions will have to be made. Of course not all business types and landlords are complete scum. Indeed many do their best to follow their chosen path in life and at the same try to give everyone a fair crack of the whip; there is after all such a thing as a good landlord. Clearly not in that category are the greedy, heartless swine who have decided to make a fast buck by evicting tenents in order to re-let the property (at hugely inflated rents) to Olympic tourists.
For some unfortunates the Olympic legacy will involve a spell of homelessness. While for some landlords it's all just a nice little earner and fuck the consequences. May the fleas of a thousand camels infest their armpits!

A small percentage of landlords are good, but most are rent seeking scumbags who care nothing about the lives of their tenants.

This is my experience.
