What do you of people who live in council houses?

there's a beautiful riverside walk near me that follows the River Taff past some m/class Cardiff suburbs and the water, plants and woodland is pristine. Then the paths veers up the valley towards "Socialist" Pontypridd with its welfare breeders and the path, woodland and water are strewn with rusty cans, crisp bags, and even the carcasses of stolen bikes and motorbikes. Horrible. Why do poor people live like slobs?

Update:

Sorry, "what do you "think"..?". Gobshite site won't let me edit.

    Nowadays the worst estates are heavily blighted by drug sheep, many of which are hosting cuckoos, so a sense of misery and hopelessness is what leads to it. It's not just the unemployment and feckless teens (their parents are worse!.) Everyone tries to be the worst person on the street because that's the only kind of respect that's left. Then you get estates which the Police simply 'let go bad'.

    There are better estates of council houses and housing association areas, it's just when the bad sheep move in that they hit the downwards spiral.

    The vast majority are disgusting, but a few are OK.

    They should be segregated, with native British in some, and the others in the other.

    Some are decent people, but many are chavs and foreigners and the reason many council areas are a tip is because people don't tend to have any respect for things they haven't invested in. It happens with anything you give for "free".

    They should not be defined by that, good and bad people live in them. I've known grafters who live in them

    I grew up in the 1950's you know and things were different then, you could call a negro a negro in them days as i often did and people who lived in council houses were generally poor but they took a bit of pride in their homes and estates and they were kept in better conditions than they are today, mind you the tenants have changed haven't they, so much has changed.

    Selling council houses has created sink estates - people who can buy out leave - the people left are poor, mentally ill, disabled, unemployed, single mothers and have little hope or energy to keep up appearances. No one else has priority to get a council house so people who would lift up an area don't come. Cuts in social spending also make things run down, grass is not cut, litter not collected, things not replaced or repaired.

    People generally do the best they can. Society has sold out on a lot of them.

    Some people live like slobs. The rich slobs are less obvious because their houses tend to be further back from the footpath or road. Also rich people have less population density so few slobs per sq km

    Source: I live in a poor(ish) area some people are slobs. My mother lives in a rich area, some of her neighbours are slobs but you have to look over their hedges.
