Let's try a simpler version of the proposition. (Probably a waste of time, as no doubt you will continue to mis-represent and sensationalise my proposals.)
Council Homes should be allocated to give priority to local working people
It's really that simple.
Why do I propose this?
Because this would reward people who work and who have a stake in their area. It also acts as an incentive to compel those who might otherwise choose to live off benefits to find a job. Because it also more closely represents society as a whole, since most people actually work. Because it will improve the quality of Council Tenants and create better, more stable communities. Because it would represent a return to the original principles upon which Council Houses were conceived.
How do you explain to working people who have to commute 2 hours to London because they cannot afford a home in London nor qualify for the privilege of a Council Home that feckless benefits recipients are sitting around enjoying the privilege of a Central London Council Home?
