    Default The end of council houses in England.

    And a return to the 19th Century.

    How long before the poor houses reopen.

    Cael being proved correct yet again.

    I hope we follow suit with a 75% cut. Its time we stop having our money stolen from us to fund the houses of knackers.

    You can contact the Niall Melon trust if you know someone in danger of destitution. I hear also you can get a 2 man tent in argos for 50 quid.

    You do realise that 50% means a half, rather than all, don't you?

    Good news. A council house in the Uk is yours for life and you can hand it on to your kids, regardless of your income. These measures, coupled with a cap on housing benefit will ensure the taxpayer stops being fleeced. The interesting outcome will be what happens to all the buy to let parasites who will no longer be able to charge rent at or above what they are paying for the mortgage.
