That is a palace compared to what I have seen in shanty towns in Africa. Very enterprising I think. Good recycling too.

Yes IMO the main cause of hardship in Australia is government
housing regulations . Poor working guys/families are forced in to massive
debt and extreme risk to acquire homes.

I look upon it as a dreadfully selfish form of tyranny imposed by the
middle class to save their own property values ( who wants a hovel next door ) .
