How can this government bleat about the purported 6,000 earning in excess of £100k per annum then offer them a 50% discount on the asset and privilege they are purportedly abusing?
Would Bob Crow who is being personally attacked as some form of sub-human scum suddenly become an aspring citizen if he chose the right to buy option? We all know the answer to that is no in his personal case yet this is exactly the case the government is trying to make in its highly duplicitous and hypocritical social policy for the average person.
Stop being a feckless ne-er do well council tenant and become an aspring and good citizen by being one of the 100,000 new RTBers that we will give £5.2bn of public money to do.
Never mind that this £5.2bn public asset giveaway could be use to build 50 large scale hospitals or give every taxpayer a £220 rebate - No we will instead give an average £52,000 bung to these ne'er do well feckless council tenants!
Lets put that in a housing context - the Coalition is spending £4.5bn until 2015 trying to get more affordable housing built. It could double that and create double the jobs it claims in its new found adherence to Keynesian social policy (Shhhh we cant call it that!)
