Subsidised Homes To Exceed Target

Recommended Posts

Would some of the more enlightened members of the forum like to explain what the heck all this means? Does this mean affordable in the sense that the average wage earner in one of these is coughing up no more than 1/3 of their monthly income to have a roof over their head, exclusive of the mad asking prices that persist in the market?

My guess is that me, the taxpayer, is being forced to pony up for 'poor' people in and around London who want to get on the mythical ladder via some government subsidy.

More corruption in the allocation of resources. The nation would be better off if the government let these homes be built privately. Instead monies will be transferred to those not working and fat cat chief execs at housing associations, whilst those working hardest who should have got accommodation will be taxed more and denied those homes.

Grant Shapps should know better.

It means :

to make some houses affordable, many more have to be UNaffordable.

It's a basic law of physics isn't it?

Antagonistic tossa post & thread by the usual two! :P

Council homes were all paid off over 50 years ago.

All the Billions £££'s in rent receipts Govts keep insisting have to go up is secretly being diverted elsewhere (tax cuts for the richest and corpo-rat-ions) after council repairs and upkeep!

Think about it.
