UK housing crisis deepens as benefit claimants priced out by high rents | Society | The Guardian
LHA is relied upon by 1.2m households to rent private accommodation but it has been frozen since 2016 and will continue to be frozen until at least 2020 as part of welfare cuts.

Council bosses have said that with private rents continuing to rise, sharp falls in affordability over the last three years are causing homelessness and child neglect as families cut back on essentials including food to make up rent shortfalls.

Too poor to play: children in social housing blocked from communal playground | Cities | The Guardian
In a move reminiscent of the ‘poor doors’ scandal, a London developer has segregated play areas for richer and poorer residents [...] Guardian Cities has discovered that developer Henley Homes has blocked social housing residents from using shared play spaces at its Baylis Old School complex on Lollard Street, south London. The development was required to include a mix of “affordable” and social rental units in order to gain planning permission. [...] But the designs were altered after planning permission was granted to block the social housing tenants from accessing the communal play areas.

Racism will not be solved by there being more mixed-race children | Nikesh Shukla | Life and style | The Guardian
“Beige Britain” won’t be the utopia we want. It’ll be the same country it always was, but with a significant demographic change. The whole “mixed-race kids ending racism” feeling is a nice thought that doesn’t change anything. It doesn’t look at divisions in the country right now. It doesn’t interrogate problems we have. It doesn’t end inequality. //&! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dI2TqlOA0vo - Alon Ziv, author of the book Breeding Between the Lines - Why Interracial People Are Healthier & More Attractive
