Another good piece of analysis has been published on the nature of the UK's housing squalor here. What is not really covered is the reason for the situation becoming so dire, which I think is down to a disparity in regional economic growth, the disproportionate emphasis on housing ownership and the decision by successive governments to ignore the shrinking minority in social housing. Of course, where politicians have occasionally paid attention to social housing this often been accompanied by demonisation of the people in it.
