It is not a 'new' strategy that is needed !, what is really needed is to reverse the Thatcher policy of allowing people to buy their council houses at up to 60% discount !
All she did was to bribe the people to vote for her, in effect to 'buy' herself another 4 years in Parliament !
In the process, she 'distorted' the market !
Many of those people who took advantage of the scheme, could have bought a house in the private market !
They now have block-paved driveways, conservatories, extensions etc., when I had a mortgage and 2 children buying our own home, we couldn't afford all those additions !, and I assure you it is not a case of being jealous, I have worked in social housing myself, and all this policy achieved is the current shortage of social housing to rent !
