Our Homes Not For Sale

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.

Dear…. Axe The Tory Tenant Tax

I’m extremely angry at the constant creation of Tax and Cuts in order to bleed the community…who are already struggling to make ends meet..

What I would like to know is…What are all these Government bodies doing to bring more wealth into our communities…instead of stealing money from the mouths of babies (Child Tax Credits) …from the sick and disabled (ESA …Bedroom Tax) etc.


No matter what new Tax is brought in. The Council or Government will always have to find the extra money to pay tenants for the shortfall…

or if they don’t allow people the security of living in their homes long term…they will have to build more properties for older people and and the disabled…


All these Benefit Capps are crazy… they are preventing people from bringing more money into the economy and means the Council will have to subsidies tenants.


In the early 1900…The Council was getting it right…people were more secure in their homes..Tenants got regular surveys and had a voice in what changes were happening…Even the front door of Turnpike House…we were asked…What colour we wanted…

In those days we had hard copy paper surveys…today we can easily get a short survey by email or text…because this is our livelihoods and homes…so we deserve to voice our opinions and needs…
