Tory millionaire David Cameron brings forward plans to kick the poorest in society out of their social housing after two years, Tory/Lib Dem fairness













Dear All

The Tories as part of their pitch to the people before the Westminster election was that they understood fairness and they had got the message.

Britain they pledged would be made fairer.

That was of course a lie, the nasty party had gone; they just changed their language, tried new gimmicks and kept using the word ‘change’.

But Tories don’t change; they are the party of the rich with a hatred of the poor.

Their latest obscenity new social housing tenants could be kicked out of their homes after as little as two years under Tory/Lib Dem Government plans.

Nick Clegg and the Lib Dems aren’t fighting against this?

Deep down Clegg is a Tory and he has sold his party down the river.

This will only apply to people in England, Scotland is unaffected by the change.

Under reforms to be announced on Monday, councils and housing associations will be able to offer contracts of just two years.

Tenants whose financial circumstances have improved could then be evicted, although they would be entitled to at least six months' notice.

Is this fairness?

Or is a lock to further trap people in poverty?

This move will further add weight that Nick Clegg has to go, if he won’t oppose such measures then his party will have to get rid of him.

Coalition Ministers claim the new measures will the system fairer, by giving social housing landlords more flexibility in trying to accommodate people with the greatest need.

Or a charter to kick people out into the street so they can put up the rents!

This isn’t about fairness; it is about profit before people.

Iain Duncan Smith was appointed to bring fairness back into society; he failed, failed because he didn’t get the concept of fairness established in the minds of his own party.

So far we have seen plans for forced labour and now people getting their homes taken off them.

Now do the people of England understand why Scots don’t vote Tory?

Cameron, Osborne and Clegg don’t care about the poor because they have effectively jobs for life and are rich.

Tory millionaires aren’t fighting for Britain; they are just fighting for a small social and political elite that wants to continue maximising their wealth at the expense of the poorest in society.

And what luck that the Lib Dems are fully onboard.

Yours sincerely

This blog is spot on. David Cameron has already conned me out of my EMA and decided to up my university tuition fees, and now this. It just keeps getting worse!

I can't help but feel like a second class citezen in my own country. http://htblogging.blogspot.com/2010/11/by-now-news-of-student-protest-against.html

It doesn't seem to occur to him that the way out of the social housing shortage is to build some more bloody houses for rent.

Nope. Basic economics is obviously not taught at Eton or Oxford.

They complain that there is a big waiting list, but, they don't seem to grasp that if they throw one set of people out to house another set of people, then the list will still be the same size, just comprised of different homeless people.

Logic and common sense seem to be missing from the curriculum in posh schools.

In truth of course he no more undertands what a council house is, than I understand the workings of the hedron collider.
