Alex, you got that right. It was selling off Council House's that has led to the Housing shortage.
Jings we better watch out as we have two spare bedrooms, the Council might make us take in single men and their wives
Thats was one of my mum's sayings when her and my dad were left in a five apartment house when all the family got married and they could not get a move to a smaller house for love nor money.
Our house was never a Council House, it is in a wee Private Estate, but we will sell it to the Council if they give us a nice wee house in a Senior Citizen Complex.
