Must be lovely getting everything for free - oh wish I was a council tenant
You should make yourself aware of basic landlord and tenant law before making such stupid comments.
A landlord (whoever they are, including those charging exorbitant private rents) has to maintain the property they are renting to tenants. That includes periodically installing new kitchens and bathrooms. Of course the tenant pays rent in order for the landlord to ensure the upkeep of the property.
Same principle with council tenants. It's worth noting some of these tenants are living with kitchens and bathrooms over 30 years old and this will be the first replacement in all that time. Is that really so unfair?
