In this podcast I discuss proposals emanating from the Conservative party for new ways to dispose of social housing. At the moment IDS’s proposal to give properties to previously unemployed tenants who manage to secure a job for a year is the one gaining the most media attention.
At the end of the podcast I speculate on how the incentives facing housing associations may change in the face of conflicting imperatives.

I thought some years ago that Tories were in support of free markets.
This does not seem the case the last 5 years.
The only association that the Tories have in my mind is that they only care for high house prices (beyond else reach) and for the BTL sector.
