Cameron on housing

October 6th, 2011

Here are a few links I gathered together last year on Cameron’s attitude to housing.  I’m loath to delete them so here they are (again) as a reference point of 2010 in politics and the Tory approach to those in need of a roof over their heads. It seems quite apt to post them again given that the Tory conference 2011 has just finished and the only thing we’ve heard is the utter stupidity of widen right to buy.
