These are a disaster. They allways get people who ruin areas and because they don't own the property don't give a shit about them.

With more people living in flats, just one "socially funded" i.e. parasite on their neighbours, is like a bad apple in a barrel.

Not sure who will exactl benefit from that. I think we need to use a more practical criteria. Soemthing like -
If people do not find affordable housing within 5 miles radius of where they leave then they are entitled to a cheaper housing. I am sure there are plenty of people who do not come under the mimimum income limit but they still can't afford the rridiculous property prices.

My god this really is a return to the economic disaster that was the 1970's. Talk about turning the clock back...

Why stop there, why not re-nationalise everything - it worked so well when everyone was equal, ie. in the sh*t together!!!

If they do go ahead with this then they had better not be allowed to sell them off - like the late 80s sell-off of the council house stock. If that had not occurred then we would not be so much in the mess we are now. These are public assets paid by all of us and shoul not be sold off to the lucky few who happen to be living in them at the time.
