How the Tories stabbed Margaret Thatcher in the back – twice!

I have a serious problem with this fixed-term tenancy idea, which is this: It’s all very well saying that tenants on fixed, five-year tenancies will still have the right to buy their council homes, but if it takes families in London 31 years of renting before they can save enough to actually buy a house for themselves, it is unrealistic to expect anyone else to be able to buy a house in less than one-sixth of that time. This is therefore a betrayal of Margaret Thatcher’s ideal – that, one day, everyone in Britain would own their own home. Since that betrayal appears to be part of the Localism Act, it is ironic that her own Party has now managed to stab her in the back, twice.

    the whole agenda stinks to high heaven. How any human being can think it, much less agree with it and introduce it makes me doubt, sincerely the altruistic nature of man.

    Thanks for the reblog.
