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.

This is an unreasonable tax on working class people, the system should be fair and encourage people to stay in work. What do you think will happen if unemployed people are better off then hard working people.

Why would any one want to work if they find themselves in poverty for doing so?

Social housing is already a scarcity. Selling off properties in inner London is abhorrent. The benefit system should continue to encourage claimants that it is worthwhile working, why would you if you then are penalized with higher rents. £40k in London, with other high costs, travel, childcare does not leave families with much disposable income. Encourage rent paying working tenants , not more housing benefit claimants.

As a council tenant this “tax” will mean I can never have anyone to live with me …. many others will be affected

This tax idea is ridiculous! I am disabled and already in a poverty trap & feel victimised. This tax will worsen both.
