U.K Elections Soon ! I'm scared!
Here we go again! U.K elections zooming along,all trying to woo us with there sweet or boring words. Don't they know we have heard it all before,have suffered from it forever ,it seems!
The Woman Thatcher placed in'The right to buy' housing policy where council tenants could buy their Council house.
Many fell for it -easy to see the poor idiots who did, not really blaming them as they were just used and 'greed' was their whip!
If one was to walk along the road where there are council houses it is obvious to see who bought their then rented house. Just look at the roofs and they tell the story. The ones still in council ownership have beautiful new roofs as they are kept in excellent condition, the tenant owned ones are usually in a bad state of repair as the costs of upkeep are too high.
Now ,today, we have the 'Conservative manifesto' it's theme on housing is .guess what! The old chestnut of 'the right to buy' deal, and this time ,as there are hardly any council houses left, it is the housing associations which are 'dangled' temptingly, in front of the voters !
I just hope the voters treat Cameron with the contempt he deserves..
A vote for the Tories is a vote for untruths,they are unfolding by the minute.
If Labour hadn't moved so far to the right there wouldn't be the gap for the Tories to pretend they cared a jot for the working people...
