Council Homes: The Economics, Stupid

This is the news:

-- Westminster council spends £20m buying back Right To Buy homes - http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/e3cdcb00-d161-11e4-98a4-00144feab7de.html

We have come full circle. The Conservatives sold them off. Poor people still needed a roof over their heads and so were thrown into the hands of private landlords - something I saw in Edinburgh during the Referendum campaign. Now one council, and irony of ironies (this election campaign is full of them) it is Westminster, has had to start buying them back.

This is so stupid. It's the economics, stupid.
