The sheer bloody lunacy of RTB and welfare reform (sic) – They cost the taxpayer MORE

The UK is becoming another Edwardian Britain, as depicted in Robert Tressell’s The_Ragged-Trousered_Philanthropists.  Unfortunately, Labour are just as much to blame, as they never overturned Conservative policies concerning council housing, during their 13 years in Government.  In fact, Labour controlled councils, like Manchester City Council, were happy to rid themselves of council housing.  They demolished hundreds, just so, ‘homes-to-buy’ could be built, resulting in many being put up for private rent.  We have over 5,000 empty dwellings in Manchester, with a long waiting list for social housing.
