New Council housing - haven't they learned anything?
Yvette Cooper's announcement yesterday that £8bn of taxpayers' money is to be given away to provide 'affordable housing', and that councils will be encouraged to build new council housing, demonstrates more clearly than anything that this bankrupt Brown government knows nothing and has learned nothing.
The socialists' council estates are the rotten core at the heart of most of our social ills. Read any copper's blog to find where they spend 85% of their time - yes, the council estates. Where do the yobs with tags and asbos live? Yes, the council estates. Where do the nation's army of social workers, probation officers and other foot soldiers of the socialist State have the vast majority of their clients? The council estates. Brown's welfare dependency system, that provides not a safety net but a DFS recliner and 42" plasma TV to those not in work, has made our council estates places of workless burdensome individuals and disfunctional deviant families. A system of welfare that costs us £80bn a year, plus the cost of tens of billions for policing and clearing up the mess of their lives.
And these imbeciles want to build more of them?
