Living in a box

Just how low can the capitalist class go ....and how far will the working class let them go before we say enough is enough .

An eight-foot aluminium box is being touted as the solution to the housing shortage. At £50,000 (fully installed and functioning), it could be a starter home for someone struggling with today's house prices .

The most obvious use , which was not even mentioned by the BBC reporter , would be that of temporary emergency accommodation in a disaster zone .

When I was a boy living on a farm we used to keep hens, and the hen-house was bigger than that box.

Further to my earlier comment, we just kept a dozen hens.
