Housing sell-off

May 28, 2015

Remember nice Mr David Cameron, our wonderful leader, all that time ago, when he stated that social housing should be for those in need.
When he said, that nice, smoochy David Cameron, that when tenants of social housing reached a certain earnings limit, that they would have to move.
Remember.
The thoughts of David Cameron.
He thought it a good idea to insist that those who could afford it should vacate social housing – that those who had reached a level of wealth that allowed them to, to leave and buy their own home in the private sector.
Remember?
Well, now, nice, smoochy, gorgeously beautiful David Cameron has had second thoughts.
Maybe someone who is his senior in Government (a Tory Grandee) has decided it would buy the Tories more votes to give-away (sell-off at a huge discount – same thing, basically.) houses in the social sector.
So, to further divide a divided Britain, a second sell-off of homes is to be legislated for.
A shredded Britain will ensure.
A Britain that dangles from the lamp-posts like strips of cheap rag will result.
Everyone is out for themselves.
No one wants to pay for anyone else.
But how long will it be before people realise that everyone pays for everyone else in Capitalism.
We all pay the profits, we all pay the benefits.

Seen on a blog……………….a YouTube video

A response written is as follows…..

“Exactly. We need to protect ourselves against the government so if need be, we can give rise to another civil war like before.
Ok, sure, so large numbers of kids and movie goers will get slaughtered and we will have to live in a culture of fear and violence, it’s just the price we pay for freedom.”

WTF kind of freedom is it?

Or is there some irony I have missed? But American humour is usually so anemic
