Council houses (owned by the people) were sold off to private individuals and private organizations - nearly always for less than they were worth. This was a Thatcherite method of buying votes and trying to create new Tory voters...and now they want to do it again by attacking the housing associations through right to buy laws that would force them to sell of property for a fraction of it's value, when there are huge waiting lists for rental and social housing and there is a major housing crisis. These people are pretty low, everyone with a brain realized this long ago, yet there are still enough stupid and/or corrupt people to vote for them to enable them to continue on as a party of national vandalism.
