Council housing shortage - you're having a laugh!

Twenty-five years after Thatcher and Heseltine embarked on their mission to destroy local authority housing, continued apace by their New Labour successors, we are treated to the sickening sound of Tory councillors squealing like stuck pigs about the shortage of... council houses. It's bad enough having to put up with criticism from those on the left who believe in public housing in the public sector, but to have to endure the whingeing hypocrisy from the Tories who encouraged the flogging off of the best houses and starved housing departments that wanted to improve the remainder... Unbelievable.
