I am amazed by how little some people seem to know of the real world.

36 years ago I was almost the same age as my son is now.
I worked at the time for the NHS, similar pay rates to councils
His work ethic is fine, he's a grafter and always has been

The cheapest property where we live is approx. £150,000

To get a mortgage he would need a deposit of £60,000, the options I have just looked at will not lend my son and his partner any more than £98,0000 (his partner is female just case there is a remote chance you that MIGHT be biased)

How the hell is he supposed to accumulate £60,000 when he can barely make ends meet a sit is.

Perhaps you should visit estates in Liverpool, Salford even Oxford and see how people have to cope. It seems you do not really have a clue.
