Right-To-Buy policy shows David Cameron is just a pound shop Margaret Thatcher

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s David Cameron!)

David Cameron has today announced his supposedly big policy idea which is supposed to win him the election.

It’s a return to one of Thatcher’s failed policies from the 1980s – the so-called ‘right-to-buy’.

The policy failed over 30 years ago because all it has done is to put huge numbers of former council flats in the hands of multi-millionaire landlords who are demanding extortionate rents.

As a good illustration of the kind of people who have benefited from the policy, the son of Thatcher’s ‘right-to-buy’ housing minister now owns 40 ex-council homes himself:

Cameron has no ideas of his own and is reduced to trying to copy failed policies from over 30 years ago.

Cameron is nothing more than a pound shop Margaret Thatcher.
