As it says...
If you voted for this you know what you are.
Not to worry though, all your billionaire friends will no doubt do very well and no doubt be bursting to pass on their good fortune to you.
Sigh.

Didn't they also propose to remove the need to sell your home to pay for care as well? That's excellent and deserves a well done.

Easy to say anything,lot harder to actually see it happening.Boris talks the talk unfortunately he does not walk the walk.
Would not trust him giving him cash to go to the shop let alone run a country.

Isn't that already the case in Scotland?
That's all very well if you have a home to sell.
Cannot wait till the 1st of February to see if the first Β£350 million extra each week gets paid into the NHS

Pretty sure most did get sold for the profit,not lived in as this was the plan,and private landlords snapped them up as the sellers made a profit and they got a cheap house.
Brilliant idea not really.

Fortunately the SNP had the foresight to end Right to Buy years ago.

And even if 40% doesn't = "most of the homes" it's still a significant proportion of them and in conjunction with the drop off in house building has created a real issue for people.

In areas like Stenhouse in Edinburgh there are loads of ex-Council homes owned by landlords. One of the landlords run the local shop so rent on paid in there. An ex colleague had one and said it was an absolute state. Had to wait months for a shower to be fixed. When the guy finally came he said ALL the properties were in a similar state. She eventually moved out. Place was filled with damp and mould.

The situation with temporary homeless acomodation is just as bad.

All the B&Bs in edinburgh are owned by one guy who charges the council an astronomical amount of money for sub standard accommodation.

That's money coming out of everyone's pocket to make this dude a multimillionaire for provide something that nobody really wants and that isn't fit for purpose.

I recall the son of Thatcher's housing minister Ian Gow became a multi millionaire of the back of renting out ex council houses.
I think he had more than 40 of them if I remember correctly.

I assume he bought those houses?

And although my eyes were open
They just might as well be closed

Of course he did.
Doesn't make it right though.
Social housing should never have been sold at a fraction of its value.
Many houses that were sold were then sold cheaply as the occupants lost their jobs as unemployment reached over 30% in some areas and they couldn't pay their mortgages.
When this happened they should have been bought back by the councils.
