Calculate how much state benefit goes to wealthy landlords via Housing Benefit

In the UK, when I was unemployed, I received about £60 per week in state benefits. My landlord received about twice that each week, around £120. He didn’t have to prove he was worthy of this money each fortnight or be used as a scapegoat for government spending. He is a multi-millionaire now of course, becuase the government channel more money to those who own land or properties rather than those looking for work.

When calculating how much money is spent on unemployment benefit/income support/universal credit, we should also tot up how much more is channelled into the hands of those who lucky enough to be wealthy, especially double-whammy scrounging landlord pensioners.
