The Independent reports that The Boy Wonder believes it is better to grant council housing on a 'fixed term' basis.
"The Prime Minister said it makes sense for tenants to be given fixed-term deals in future - so they can be moved on if their circumstances change."
"Not talking about existing tenants but, for future tenants........."
'So they can be moved on'? WTF and how is that going to work? So DC is to decide how someone's income should be spent and on what? And the difference between 'council housing' and 'social housing' is what? As for the difference between 'existing tenants' and 'future tenants', one has to wonder if he has cleared this idea with his masters in Brussels? In particular I would refer to Article 21, Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU): "Every citizen shall have the right to move and reside freely within the territory of Member States....". If it is the 'right' of someone from another country to live here 'freely', then it must, surely, be the 'right' of those already here?
One can only suppose that having opened mouth before engaging brain and upsetting the people of Pakistan he felt he may as well do the same thing in his own country!
