The silence is deafening.
Our Mr Halewood is only too ready to pop up at a moment's notice to slice and dice the figures as if he takes a nose full of the white stuff on his cornflakes every morining, afternnon and evening.
But on that £37bn he has been struck dumb.
And Mr Webb attempts to neutralise the £37bn by asserting it's a government grant.
This establishes him as a loony lefty fascisti. For your information, that £37bn is directly out of the taxpayer's pocket. It is monumental subsidy.
And now I come to think of it, why is it in Mr Halewood's calculations of revenues from housing receipts there is no mention of capital expenditure through the Housing Corporation, again by government grant, again out of the taxpayer's pocket.
Such inconvenient figures.
