This will further expand the reach of the state into our personal lives by using landlords as immigration officers (a process we’re seeing with the islamaphobic PREVENT strategy where medics and teachers are being used by the government as police).
But this also creates an unprecedented situation whereby landlords have the power to evict without getting a court order. A power which no doubt some will seek to use to reinforce gentrification and social cleansing happening in places like London.
