Comment on: L&Q records £95m surplus
Housing crisis, , we are all in it together economic catastrophe, charitable status = huge surplus. You could not make it up.
However, where there is a winner there are a hell of a lot more losers. Could be a similar operation and/or client(s).
Comment on: Speech marks
Look to history to glimpse the future. Politicians are nothing if not consistent by demonising sections of the community to further their agenda and attract votes through influencing the impressionable and ill-informed then using them to perform their ‘dirty-work’.
Cons/LibDem/New labour, no real difference between them. Society of their collective making is there and growing with all the associated problems. None of the foregoing is up to sorting out a ‘solution’.
Study ‘Kristalnacht’. Then substitute the then victims with today’s victims of economic and housing ‘policies’, education and social failure, the obvious growing elderly population. Cameron, Shapps, Osborne, Duncan Smith, and, Clegg are without subtlety sowing the seeds for a modern day equivalent.
By the way, my parents, grandparents with those of many my friends and acquaintances fought against the repercussions of ‘Kristalnacht’ and subsequent catastrophic tyranny.

That right there is a real 'food-for-thought' question.
Fair points posted by Rick, footpath, and, tenantplus. Perhaps naively I retain a degree of confidence in law and justice, even communicating courteously with those who show themselves to be economic with truth and honesty, including local councillors, my MP, local authority and HA officers, managers and directors . However, I can count on my first two fingers those among the aforesaid who have my respect, in fact I have nothing but contempt for some.
Regarding access to the law, DIY or using the power of the internet and press may be the way to go. After all, housing supply is in crisis with huge waiting lists. So public interest is certainly there. It may even be possible that the law firms currently exploiting opportunities in respect of PPI, personal injury, Health Service negligence may see a cash generating opening.
Comment on: Competition watchdog has housing in its sights
"Keith Jenkins, partner at law firm Winkworth Sherwood, said: ‘Where is the competition supposed to take place? There isn’t a “market” because of the nature of the provision of housing."
Obvious point, in this sector the focus should be supply with rigid regulation, inspection, and, audit.
