People do get large houses for nothing.
The Radharc na Gréine estate here in galway city is a good example.
Underfloor heating, 4 bedrooms, lovely houses, bigger and more modern than many private homes, given to people who don't work, some have never worked, have no intention of working, and who will be looked after, while those who contribute will by your own admission face the prospect of the bank taking their house from under them if they fall ill.
Yes, a mortgage is technically a choice, but many people won't qualify for a council house, so it's either buy, or spend your life renting, and then get booted out when you retire and can't pay rent anymore,so it's a necessity for many people.
Also, deciding not to work, go to college,etc?
Also a choice, though the people who make this choice seem to get looked after. Brilliant isn't it?
And those stories you claim to "invariably" turn out to be bs, aren't "invariably" bs. Some of them are true, some of them aren't.
Look on the brightside gleebo, the longer people are stuck renting,and the higher the rents are, the the more money the government rakes in on tax, thus providing more funds for social housing.

Do you want names or something?
Although it's technically incorrect to say their getting them for free,, taking into account the paltry sum of money they pay the council versus the fact they're protected from mortgage hikes, rent hikes etc, it's probably more appropriate to say that they're getting paid to live there.

Gimme a break here, I'm having to deal with a guy whose never met me and doesn't know anything about my life telling me that what I've seen with my own eyes is not happening.
