You know when you see a tweet on Twitter and you think….. ..hang on a second I though it was only social housing which was subsidised and full of scroungers taking thee mickey out of the ‘hardworking family’ and hardworking taxpayer… Oh I see now – so the 4 million households in social housing receive £1.125 billion per year in subsidy from the taxpayer while those who own mansions get NINE TIMES MORE in subsidy from the hardworking taxpayer then?
The source for the above is Figure 6 NAO Tax Reliefs report http://www.nao.org.uk/?p=49954
One quick comment or thought dear reader – If the great and the good of social housing who have never challenged the assertion and pejorative repeated comments (often from mansion owing Tory politicians) that social housing is subsidised by hardworking taxpayers and is full of welfare dependent scumbags (ok you get the gist) then you realise why the social housing ‘sector’ couldn’t lobby their way out of a wet paper bag and are not fit for purpose as they fail to advocate and promote their own industry which every other person in every other job does!!
Gift horse and mouth = silence not SHOUTING from the social housing sector!
