It Has To Stop
I have been involved with construction for 45 years. During this time market forces have dictated what type of property people can afford to live in.
We are now in the odious position that social housing is being provided at a much higher specification than private houses. The houses are being provided for the so called needy of our society, but it must be wrong that the tax / rate payer is paying for these homes when most of them can only afford inferior properties. It is a fact that the majority of these tenants do not pay rent and this is made up from taxes and rates.
All social housing associations should be abolished and the government should gaurantee a mortgage for all. Prospective purchases could the choose from the the market place like the rest of us.
