Financial Times: Osborne Eyes Privatisation Of Stake In Social Housing

Recommended Posts

FFS.

It won't cut public debt at all!

Now now be fair, it'll indeed cut public debt by £100bn, which will quickly be wiped out in about a year given the deficit is running at about £100bn a year.

Can I get a job on newsround now?

How surprising; nationalise to deregulate & privatise. The private sector applied to land and housing works so well for everyone.

I bet there's a steaming pile of real financing losses somewhere in all this that remain entirely socialised.

The biggest housing association in Worcester where a friend of mine's been working is struggling because they are £60 million worse off because of the cuts. So when he went in on Monday he and others were told they finished next Friday as they were being replaced with apprentices.

The ons recently reclassified them into the public sector. I think I can see where this is going - even lower public sector housebuilding. Private sector won't ramp up houseuilding volumes required.

earlier this week the housing minister wrote to all local authorities telling them to help unblock the morase caused by the RP sector - specifically to allow whatever tenure of affordable was needed to unblock stalling housing schemes. Essentially this will mean more shared accommodation, which will work from Govt perspective as more housing and more social (where occupier has an owner occupier mindset)

all connected, insofar as the housing associations have failed to deliver as many new homes as Govt wanted from it's grant and planning procress
