Housing Hypocrite: Sajid Javid fought plans for 4200 homes in own backyard | Political Scrapbook

This is not Sajid Javid; it’s The Collector, from Doctor Who. The character just reminds me of Mr Javid in that he is an oily, untrustworthy villain.

Housing Secretary Sajid Javid [spent Monday] morning blaming NIMBY councils for the housing crisis on GMB and LBC. Turns out however that he’s been the biggest NIMBY in his constituency Bromsgrove for years.

It seems Javid has been a little disingenuous. In fact, Javid has consistently fought for the NIMBYs in his local constituency:

1) Just months before his re-election in 2015, Javid slammed plans from his local Tory Council, Redditch Borough, to build 2,800 new homes.

2) In June 2016, Javid slammed his local council’s plans to build 1,300 houses in Perryfields.

3) In 2012, Javid backed another campaign against plans to build 175 homes in the Worcestershire village of Hagley.

    Javid sent letter one day short of the official cut off for comments and objections

    Yeah looks like Javid is really informed and committed. Probably had a last minute consideration as to how popular it would make him siding on the side of the locals.

    Not exactly an enthusiastic campaigner. Would not like him on my side Lazy B*****d

    Looks like it is about building on greenbelt land. so fair objection.

    Another thoroughly dishonest and hypocritical Tory.
