A new right to buy revolution: 35 years after Maggie's visionary policy, Cameron pledges property dream will become reality for 1.3million more families

A massive extension of Margaret Thatcher’s landmark right-to-buy housing policy will be announced by David Cameron today.

In a bold pitch to blue collar voters who delivered Lady Thatcher’s three election victories, the Prime Minister will call the Tories ‘the party of working people’.

He will pledge discounts of up to 70 per cent to allow all 1.3million families in housing association properties to buy their home.

‘The next Conservative government will extend the right-to-buy to all housing association tenants in this country – 1.3million extra families – a new generation given the security of a home of their own,’ he will say.

Mr Cameron is also expected to promise to link the minimum wage to increases in the income tax allowance – meaning more than a million workers on £6.50 an hour will pay no tax at all.

Today Cameron announced that the zombie remains of Thatcher would be dug up and made to dance to the tune of knees up mother brown in a bid to woo the last remaining working people not yet condemned to rentier serfdom.

:lol::lol::lol: That really made me laugh!

Me too.

On a more serious note, it really begs the question - if you're not poor or stinking rich, what is the point in working and trying hard? Parties of all colours appear to be forgetting the middle earners :(

:lol:

It'll be something to do with the free market :lol:

There's always money there for their pet schemes.

The UK's becoming so unbalanced it's in danger of tipping into the sea.

So those FTBers who bought a pokey flat with Help to Buy will be wishing they had stuck with their original plan to be a tenant of a housing association.

What a shower the Conservative branch of the LibLabCon is.

Middle earners havent been forgotten. We are down to pay for all of the promises, better keep working.

The last time this was announced by the Tories, it excluded properties acquired by HA's prior to 1997. No mention of that this time. I also see the maximum discount for London is £102,700. Pi55 in the ocean for what my one bedroomed flat would get on the open market.

Wow a 70% discount, what's in this for everyone else who bought and didn't get a discount? Perhaps everyone else should get a tax rebate for the cost of buying a house?

Just think how that would boost the economy!

nice to see the middle earners winning again , i almost wish i was born in a council house

Agreed. I don't know why everyone is still on at me to buy one of those full priced houses, I'll wait for the HTB 70% off, no interest ever, to come out!

The Conservatives really are looking a bit desperate. There's no economic or philosophical consistency to any of what they're proposing, they're like some kind of random policy generator.

The discount is only what that price should be anyway.....how many will be earning enough to buy it even with the discount?......they should then only sell it at market price once fully paid for or it could be termed as flipping for a quick gain at the public expense.
