Tories flogged off Scottish council houses for £14,000 each

Tories hit out at Scots plan to scrap right to buy

"Scottish Tories have condemned plans by the Holyrood government to end the right of all new tenants to buy their council or housing association homes. Chief whip David McLetchie described the decision... as an ‘act of naked political vandalism’. He said: ‘Nearly half a million homes have been bought thanks to a policy which has done more to make housing affordable for working people in Scotland than any other before or since. At the same time receipts from sales, now approaching £7bn, have enabled other rented homes to be modernised and new council houses to be built for those who continued to rent in the past 25 years.’. Isn't flogging off council houses for £14k the "ultimate political vandalism"??
