Sounds perfectly fair to me!
Council house rents would quadruple under a Conservative government, a union leader warned yesterday. Unite deputy general secretary Jack Dromey said housing would be one of the areas hardest hit by Tories. He said they were studying plans by Hammersmith and Fulham council to raise rents to â€œmarket levelsâ€. â€œIt would mean a two-bedroom council flat that currently costs Â£85 a week would go up to Â£380 a week,â€™â€™ said Mr Dromey.
