    Have a look at the other thread. These changes are never just about providing more housing opportunities for those who are less fortunate.

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    So you're another of those dismal mugs who can't do the maths involved in showing that the majority of council and housing association tenants don't have "taxpayer subsidised rent".
    How very unsurprising.

    Doesn't council housing still make a net contribution to the Treasury?

    It does, despite supposedly being "subsidised".
    What these "subsidy" fools don't/won't "get" is that a body choosing not to set a market rent for their owned assets (and about 85% of local authority social housing is bought and paid for) isn't taking a subsidy to do so, it's merely exercising the same rights over its' property as any landlord, albeit to provide housing at an affordable, rather than an exploitative rent.

    SpamMisery I bet you think this tagline's about you?

    No need to be rude. I already understand the majority don't have subsidised rent. And neither did it require maths to work that out

    If you already understood, then why the carping in the post I replied to?

    Crikey, I never thought about it from that perspective. Feel a bit silly now. Have you ever thought about a career in education?

    and then there's the question of whether the daily mail definition of "fairness" - as in "everyone - except the very rich of course - should be shat upon equally" is genuine fairness, or whether it would be better to think about the tories creating an artificial shortage of social housing (and new labour doing bugger all to change that) rather than scapegoating those who have got social tenancies...

    He knows what he is doing. He is far from stupid. His posts are deliberate windups.

    He is not making assumptions. VP has gone into this often here. As regular posters will know.

    I am not sure what u mean by being "schooled in lefty politics". If that means one reads and thinks a bit I think your phrase is somewhat dismissive.

    VP posting style is the opposite of mine. However he cannot be accused of writing his posts using a lot of obscure marxist jargon. He is always to be point and readable. Dont see what the problem is to be honest.

    And my answer is that I have said things to people on both sides. If it makes you feel better, I'll pm VP next time or any of the others. They are all welcome over to mine for a cup of tea.

    I normally do what you told VP to do. Be polite and use links to back up posts.

    So if one does that one is guilty of being "super brainy"?

    This isn’t going well is it.
