And why are you "better off" if you own your home? Because Thatcher sold off all except the rubbish council houses, cheap, that's why. Like she sold everything else off that she could, cheap, her and Major and Cameron. All the utilities, the railways, Royal Mail, you name it. All to get more and more people into having a stake in shareholding capitalism, all rewarded with a quick buck thanks to too-cheap selloffs, all to encourage them to keep voting Tory cos that what good Tories do, sell stuff that belongs to everybody, built up and paid for with our tax money, into the private hands of the few, cheap. In general people are better off, eh? Tell that to the disabled people driven off benefits, those down the food bank and all those who not only have no job security but who don't even know when their next working hours are coming. You really are an ostrich, aren't you?
