    The Collective housing project continues to flourish 7 months on | Daily Mail Online

    Just seen this article in the Wail. Basically a hall of residence but for young professionals. I think this is a great idea and is similar to home stays I stayed In while in Indonesia, albeit much larger.

    Seems it's only open to youngsters, but what a great idea.

    With the number of increasing older adults suffering from mental illness it's about time we offered the young ones some refuge.

    Stock full of Bremainers by the sound of things, and they need to "text a staff member" when a lightbulb needs changing.

    Well of course - that's the demographic. Why would it be anything else? Similarly Brexiters are to be found at St Albethna's Home for the Elderly Deranged.

    I'm not sure it's my kind of thing being an introvert but I can see the appeal for others.

    It's not that new an idea, I remember in my twenties staying at a friends brothers apartment in Canada. They had gym, squash, pool, shops, communal areas - pretty much the same kind of setup.
