Perhaps Theresa May felt bullied into announcing a housing policy – after all, Labour has promised a million new homes over the next five years, if the party is elected into government, half to be social housing.

But her promise to increase the number of homes for social rent fell flat on its perfumed posterior when we all realised she’ll put no money into it.

She can’t even confirm how many new builds are likely to take place under her haphazard and cack-handed scheme.

And this is the woman who says Labour doesn’t have a leader?

Let’s put this in context:

If Labour wouldn’t get away with it, there’s no reason Tory May should.

The Conservatives will increase the number of homes for social rent with a new right-to-buy scheme, Theresa May has announced.

Ministers have since confirmed no new money will be spent on the scheme, which will be funded through cash promised in last year’s Autumn Statement.
