The first question that came to my mind was a possible secret agenda to cleanse "posh" areas of "riff-raff."
Have there been mutterings down at the Conservative Club that the presence of social housing on their doorstep is lowering the tone of the area, affecting the values of their properties and harbouring undesirables, I wonder?
Typical of the nimby attitude that often prevails in Britain.
Do these characters not realise that social housing is needed in all areas so essential services and employers that can recruit locally for posts where the salary is less than the national average?
When they find that the local services that they use are understaffed or they struggle to find a cleaner or gardener, maybe they will think again.
