    Sounds about right Tony, no doubt some Russian or Chinese oligarch will grab it to hide their free QE money. It's not called the London world's laundromat for nothing. There are streets of multi M houses lying empty and going to rot.

    Them houses rotting away.... Criminal. If they dont want them them the could let them be turned into owd folks homes or summat. They could still own them. Or even donate them to the Council, but to let them get in that state is just plain daft.

    Not sure about houses costing millions rotting away. The MoD handed forces married quarters over to a civvy contractor to maintain most are in an appalling state now. RAF camps which are no longer operational had hundreds of married quarters some former officers quarters, set in some lovely countryside and could have been sold as estates,, places vandalised to f**k, only fit for being demolished now. Civvy contractor did not put any security on them when they became empty. Several hundred houses could have been give to a council, the sites have shops, gymnasiums, some with swimming pools, loads of car parks. Enough to make you weep. Yet no t**ts head will roll!

    Thats why they need us in charge Wig. I mean that. We could do a better job

    Politicians at the vanguard of this shit do not know what they are doing the world over. Every where you look they just lurch from one debacle/fook up to another.

    Milk Snatcher created the gaff shortage wi the right ta buy bollox o social ousin, turnin thousands o council houses inta private gaffs. Az the original owners deed off, the gaffs wo snatched up by soo-ap dodger property tycoons fer peanuts, turned 3 bedroom gaffs inta 8 bedroom wi a shack in the back garden ta ouse 12 moor. Soo-ap dodgers rented em out at a grand a room per month especially in Londonistan ta other soo-ap dodgers mekkin a fukkin fortune. Result, mega rich soo-ap dodgers fillin the country wi other soo-ap dodgers resultin in acute shortage o social gaffs fer indigenous population. Many military vererans now livin on the streets n a might bi joinin em soon. Well Done Maggie!!!!!

    Re: Is this real ?

    In all honesty Dave, i didn't/don't have a problem with right to buy, especially as properties get older. The problem was the Councils were not allowed to use the proceeds to fund new house building. This was deliberate in my view to enable private property developers to cash in. I reckon Councils should be allowed to offload their properties to tenants when they have had their money and a reasonable surplus back, then use that for new builds. This would keep jobs going, but the tories don't like that because it's competition to the private sector.

    Re: Is this real ?

    The "Private Sector" has completely fukked the gud owd salt o the earth working man Don. Everything fukkin private, no Union member directly employed by the council or any of the major utilities anymoor, everything out ta tender ta the private sector equals no job security or workers rights. Utilities should serve the people not fat cat private company gaffers n fukkin shareholders. I remember the gud owd days when if thi tap wuz drippin tha cud ring the waterworks dept. up n a geezer in iz navy blue uniform adorned wi silver buttons wud turn up wi iz bag o tricks n soort it fo thi, all part o the service. No fukkin wonder in our climate, millions o fukkin gallons o water iz fukked off ta waste. No staff fer maintinence duties, underground pipes fukked, rivers breakin their banks causing severe floods when all that,s needed is ta dredge the fukkers out regularly cos tha can,t put two pints inta fukkin one! No! can,t av that, costs ackers, think about the fat cat gaffers n shareholders. Country iz well n truly FUKKED!

    Truth be known Dave its a careful hybrid of both philosophies. Unrestrained you get what happens in those Banana Republics to the South of my manor. Over regulated to the extreme you get.... Russia China Poland where people were getting shot trying to get out....and the grandaddy of them all, N Korea.

    Re: Is this real ?

    You just have to look at the grabbing bastards on programmes like Homes under the Hammer to see what's happening with private rental. Buy them cheap at auction spend as little as possible doing them up then rent them out at an exorbitant rate. Then sell them after kicking some poor bastard out who's paid for the bloody thing since renting it. It's not right and needs sorting out big time.
