council house, poll tax and spin doctors

Blair wants us all to believe that private money will lead to better housing, and that it MAY well. However, what will be the cost? Higher rents, more hounding of those who are least able to keep up their rent payments and a loss of local control over standards.

Thatcher renamed the poll tax, the council tax. Now Blair wants to see Glasgows council rented homes renamed to "socially rented house".

Be careful Mr Blair, organic farmers love bull-manure.....

If the banks and insurance companies invest£1.6 billion in Glasgows housing do you think for a moment it will not be to make a profit?

If you do, you are naive!
