Where as he is dismantling social housing as a matter of principle!
Gavin - simple question. Think back and consider, what social advantage would it have cost your family had subsidised housing not been available to you and instead you had had to pay the full market rate for your home.
Re subsidy - do read again, and flick back if you want. I've consistently pointed to the fact that the rents paid into the treasury exceeded what was paid out, exampling that the point had been passed where the tenant tax was universal rather than a tax on some at benefit to more. I've consistently recognised capital costs as being outside of this - just as the capital subsidy on low cost housing for sale is not considered as being a 'debt' on the home.
So in short - don't patronise me with your warping of my own views, it is not appreciated and will not be accepted.
