Conservative with a capital C word
Cameron's latest bright idea:
Slum clearance, but with a 21st century twist. The trouble is that he hasn't thought out what this twist might be.
Having sold off all the council houses after the last slum clearance, will the government compensate the private owners for their loss? If they do, will it be at market prices?
Or will they compensate the housing associations which were privatised for their losses? If so, will it be at market prices?
Now you could accuse me of being a left-wing lunatic in the same way that you could accuse Cro and Rachel of being slightly right of Attila the Hun, but think about it - where is the fucking re-development and re-housing money going to come from?
Stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid.
