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.

Adequate housing is a human right. Financial costs associated with housing should not threaten the attainment and satisfaction of other basic needs.

‘Pay to stay’ arises from the ruling Party’s commitment to a ‘market’, even in rents. This is an ideological position which, in London and elsewhere, is now working counter to our human rights.

The decision to do this is creating a negative workforce and a negative workforce is an unproductive one.

Our country needs to support and encourage the people who are trying to stay employed, if they are on this type of salary to start with they are just about paying their bills and surviving, Hamster treadmill lifestyle springs to mind, our country will end up paying dearly in other areas such as mental health for making decisions like this.

People need to get something in return for trying is that not what we teach in our schools today, why does it change once you hit the workforce?
