Shocking News!

For those of you who are unaware of the gripping read that is Inside Housing, the premier social housing website, you are missing.. almost bugger all actually. I was unaware of it till this beauty came to my attention; The government has withdrawn funding from the pathfinder housing scheme. What is the pathfinder scheme? Well it’s;

These nine organisations were established by the Labour government in 2002 with a 10 to 15-year mission: to tackle what had become widely accepted as a signficant problem in housing markets and communities in traditional Labour heartlands.

So a Conservative-Lib Dem government has cut funding to a pet scheme of John Prescott that was designed purely to channel tax payers money to Labour voting heartlands. I am indeed shocked. Shocked it’s taken them so damned long to cut the funding.

Now don’t get me wrong, I do think large areas of Labour voting heartlands could do with being demolished. I just don’t think the people in the houses should be allowed to leave first. Anyone who genuinely looked at Gordon Brown and thought; “Yes, he should be allowed to continue as Prime Minister” and voted accordingly deserves to have their house demolished on top of them.
