FACT OF THE WEEK: KARL MARX, RENT AVOIDER

We’d be prepared to bet large sums that you didn’t know that Karl Marx, revolutionary socialist, was once evicted from his home in Chelsea. 

After he was exiled from Paris, Marx lived with his wife and children at 4 Anderson Street, where he continued writing and formulating his theories about social and economic activity. 

He was eventually evicted for not paying his rent and he moved to the German Hotel in Leicester Square, and later to Dean Street in Soho.

Tut tut.
