BBC news: Builder Persimmon lacks minimum house standards, report finds

The UK's second biggest housing firm does not have an agreed minimum standard for all the homes it builds, an independent report has found.
When the government makes a policy to throw money at a sector, should it not add checks and balances in place ?

Friend of mine went to look at Persimmon home recently and was less than impressed - big snagging lists apparently !

Sure the government should make these checks but they never do. They just throw money at a problem, maybe a few million to engage some useless consultancy firm etc. They never think about what problems this might cause further down the line (that your dog could have seen coming), as long as they look like they're doing something. And the worrying thing is how few people seem to notice.
I dread to think what moronic schemes they will come up with in response to all the current climate change discussions. Maybe a tax on meat? Councils to charge for picking up rubbish? Here in Dundee they are charging to uplift garden waste from January, which will no doubt mean more of it being fly-tipped or going into landfill. And it's not like these little extra costs of living would ever be included in the inflation figures.
