None of the Ramsey staff I have met live 12 to a room. The senior ones with families live mostly in flats in South London and the trainees are offered studio/bedsit flats. These positions are available for UK citizens but they choose not to apply. Accommodation for 18-35 year olds is definitely an issue in the South East and indeed in other parts of the UK. This is down to lack of policy by successive governments not the hospitality industry

Yes I didn't mean Gordon Ramsey in particular.... Poor old Gordon, I've bashed him for no reason.
The point I was trying to make was if you work for minimum wage in London there's no way you can afford to live 'normally' in a private rented flat and where you can afford to live may have a detrimental effect on one's sunny disposition.
Plus I wasn't blaming anybody in particular, just making the point that if you're new to London and work for (about) minimum wage you're going to find it hard to find accommodation...

I think I'll stop making points now as I'm obviously no good at it... I seem to have to clarify everything afterwards.

I read it.
I'd still like to know why so many low-income people keep voting for things that only benefit the super-rich and harm themselves... I can't believe that they are all brain-dead robots who just do what The Daily Mail tell them and I don't think it's just about austerity either.. but they seem to be upset about something...

PS: I can't help it but I do find the phrase ''Russian troll farms'' slightly amusing....

Agreed!
Slightly more concerning is why there we have a better chatter here on Zappateers than we are getting across the UK news media platforms disbelief

The Breaking of Britain Johnson Goes Full Speed Ahead into Chaos

The fight over Brexit is becoming increasingly absurd. In this week's epic clash between Prime Minister Boris Johnson
and the House of Commons, parliament appears to have won round one. But Johnson is going for broke.

The beautiful face of Brexit - 200 people fight with police 16 arrested

https://videos.metro.co.uk/video/met/2019/09/08/352957272891605028/640x360_MP4_352957272891605028.mp4

I recognise some of those angry faces

Compared to the Remain Rally - hundreds of thousands of protesters - no arrests

I used to be an anglophile. Hell, I have lived in the UK for many years!

Now I just don't care much about the UK anymore, fucking idiots!
My condolences to the sane people of Britain.

That's exactly what I keep asking myself. Same here in Germany, where people of low income (and education) kepp voting for the AFD. If you'd single out one political party that is absolutely anti workers rights it's that very same bullshit racist, neo fashist, anti ecological AFD.
