paulb Posted March 23, 2013 Report Share Posted March 23, 2013 Not only that unless we stop people buying social housing after period time we are not going to have enough emergency housing for those in real genuine need locally, any locals that get into difficultly forget it, the housing list has gone or been supported to those comming from south . It is ill-informed comments like this that make my blood boil... I live in a council house. I have lived in it for more than 30 years. If I bought it, it would make absolutely no difference to anybody other than myself. Unless of course, you are suggesting that I should be forced to buy 'somewhere' in order that some needy(?) person could get somewhere to live.. sadly colin i suspect thats how its going to go. my family moved into a new council house in the slum clearances of the 1930s we were still there when they were pulled down in the late 90s. roughly 60 years of rent. and 4 generations lived there. cant see them allowing that anymore. but obviously buying would have made more sense if your normal worker could have got a mortgage then.
