Perhaps Moggymoo - Shapps has redefined affordable to be 80% of the sort of rent you are struggling to pay currently - i.e. not affordable. This is why the affordable rent proposals are not a good thing, because they are not affordable. Shapps is explaining that if people like you can not afford to live in an area then they should move to an area that they can afford; and in the same way that tenants should have to be the primary funders of new housing through paying higher rents. Maybe you want to move, or be individually responsible for funding that used to be shared between you, the rich, and company profits, but I would guess you do not.
The affordable rents that these replace, which were affordable, did produce a surplus - thus people did not need the tax payer to subsidise them, but in fact subsidised the tax payer. The tax payers collectively funded the socially required provisions, such as housing. Yet the new proposals would have this burdon met by the poor instead.
If you take into account that tenants, just like you, are also tax payers then you get away from any confussion of the kind liked by Shapps which states tenants as scroungers. Under Shapps it will be he and his friends freeloading on your back, getting richer whilst you struggle to even hold onto your private let.
Nice guy, isn't he.
