Our Homes Not for Sale

All people deserve to feel secure in their homes.

The Tory Government wants to end the security Council tenants currently enjoy and to sell off council homes.

The Tories’ new law will:

  • Ban new lifetime tenancies, ending the security that Islington Council tenants are currently offered.
  • Force the Council to sell hundreds of homes each year, making it even harder for local people to find an affordable home in Islington.

We, the undersigned, call for the Tory Government to stop the planned ban on lifetime tenancies and the forced sale of council homes.

Housing bill is a nasty attack on working people’s security and social housing.

Creating homelessness through the taxing of tenants and the reduction of public housing stock by sell off to the private sector will in the long term be an expensive strategy. People without homes are less likely to be able to work and therefore not contribute through taxation and more likely to become ill placing a higher burden on the NHS. These policies of the conservatives which are based on a nonsensical ideology and not on sound economics or commensense are extremely destructive to the whole population.

Outrageous, totally counterproductive, how much revenue do they think they will gather? Another waste of buearocratic time, threatening the security of people who cannot afford mortgages, removing their long term housing security.
