    Shows how much bollocks the whole 'affordable' thing has always been. Without some link to average wages, all it seems to mean is 'still ridiculously priced but slightly less expensive than other flats in the development'. FFS. :mad:

    'One of the largest housing associations in the UK last week announced it would no longer build social housing. Instead, its chief executive said, it will only build homes for sale, for rent at full market rates or for shared ownership.

    Furthermore, Genesis housing association, which owns and manages about 33,000 homes around London and the south-east, will consider selling or raising the rents on its existing social homes once they become vacant'

    '....It is sad that a sector that was created by social housing giants to challenge government policies on homelessness and poor housing conditions now seeks to mirror the current government’s backward steps into a housing policy more suited to the 19th century than the 21st. The chief executive of Genesis reportedly said that housing low-income families “won’t be my problem”. I wonder what those who founded Genesis almost 50 years ago would say to that.'

    I can't say that I find the idea of being drowned in a deluge of non-doms too appealing.
