Housing Priorities... Hodge stirs the Hornets Nest... again

#1
Margaret Hodge seems to have stirred up the Parliamentary Hornets Nest, according to today's Guardian (21 May 2007) with her suggestion, reported in yesterday's Observer (20 May 2007) that Britons (including ex-Service personnel?) should take precedence over immigrants and asylum seekers when it comes to being allocated public housing. She suggests that currently economic migrants take precedence over the natives, the veracity of which I am unsure about.

(Slim, it looks like I've beaten you to reporting this... :twisted: )

If this suggestion is taken notice of and acted on it will be a good thing for the average working man and women. However after 10 years in power why haven't labour done anything about it already. Just another drum beating exercise methinks.
