It should never have been introduced, at least not at those sort of discounts and the money should have been used to buy new council houses.

I believe this is the reason were in the housing situation we’re in now, short supply, councils paying private companies for housing stock, high rents – with consequent high house prices.

When Maggie floated this idea, she removed the council involvement in the housing market, making it a free for all, a reverse monopoly if you like.
