Covid-19 and the ‘generational housing divide’
In a comment to The Guardian, I said:
‘The divide is actually one of class and ethnicity, not one of generation. We need to question government policies that have shut down public spaces for young people during lockdown and pushed them back into their homes during lockdown when evidence doesn’t show the necessity of that.’
‘Covid-19 exposes stark generational housing divide, UK report says; Young more likely than old to be locked down in overcrowded homes with no garden, says study.’ Amelia Hill, The Guardian, 3 July 2020.
