Cameron's Final Solution.
Britain has a serious economic problem - an inbalance that has warped it out of shape and destroyed countless lives. The problem is the housing market in which prices are simply too high for most first-time buyers. Unable to buy many have had no choice but to rent. Unfortunately there has been no affordable housing built in this country for some time and ths supply is therefore limited. What is left, much of it consisting of ex-council house properties that have found their way into the hands of a wealthy rentier class, is so expensive that it too is unaffordable. Many of these properties would not be rented out at all if it wasn't for the fact that the rents are paid for out of taxpayers money. Many young people, the product of an education system broken almost beyond repair, have little chance of getting a job and, even if they could, it wouldn't be worth their while because they can't pay the exorbitant rents being charged. Its a mess that could be alleviated if new affordable housing was built. That would have the added benefit of getting the economy moving again and sweeping aside what has become a log-jam. So what does Cameron propose? Taking the benefits from young people that offer them the only chance of an independent life of sorts. That is his solution - the old Tory trick of punishing the victim. The only question is why would any Prime Minister do such a thing? The answer is blindingly obvious. If new affordable housing is built then supply would once again match demand and house prices would innevitably fall. This would include the PM's own property portfolio and that of his wealthy mates. What this criminal is actually suggesting is punishing our sons and daughters in order to benefit his. It is naked self-interest that is uppermost in his mind and not the interests of the nation as a whole.
