6. You know what gets me about this?
Edited on Tue Oct-19-10 02:21 PM by T_i_B
An 8% defence cut gets all the attention but a 50+% cut in social housing barely a whimper. We have a big problem with lack of council housing and increasingly unafforable housing that the government is making much, much worse.

That affects people much more then a sodding aircraft carrier.
