Son of Thatcher’s ‘right-to-buy’ housing minister now owns 40 ex-council homes

Cameron’s latest Right-to-Buy scheme will create even more rich landlords. Precious social housing will be disposed of at knock down prices. Why be surprised? Aristocrats selling off the family silver with no thought for the future – a fine old British tradition.

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the Tories!)

Multi-millionaire Charles Gow is a buy-to-let landlord who owns over 40 former council flats.

Which is interesting, because his father, Ian Gow, was the Housing Minister under Margaret Thatcher during the so-called ‘right-to-buy’ sell off of council properties:

And now the Tories have announced a brand new ‘right-to-buy’ policy which will no doubt once again benefit their own families to the detriment of everybody else.

What’s that saying?

Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.
