Nice one, Simon ....

Mr Pickles said: ‘This government’s package of measures to boost the housing market is working, with house building and housing supply on the up. The tough decisions we’ve taken to tackle the deficit are now delivering a sustainable increase in housing and providing real help to hard-working people.

‘With over 10,000 reservations in 4 months, it’s clear that the Help to Buy: Equity Loan scheme is working well. By dealing with the big challenges, we are helping thousands of young people and families get on and move up the housing ladder, and Britain is building again.’

Help to buy reservations reach 10,000

When ​I read the headline I thought it was referring to the reservations expressed by economists over whether this was a good policy.

Jesus F-ing Christ that fat man is an idiot.

Firstly, the Tories have NOT reduced the deficit, secondly there is absolutely no connection between the deficit (be it rising or falling) and the number of new houses being built (or indeed existing ones being bought and sold).

And "hard-working" is bollocks anyway, fatso knows perfectly well that the BTLs are hoovering up most of the new supply.

Finally, there are about ten or fifteen million adults in the UK (most of them "hard working") who are renting or living with parents and who would love to own their own home (or have a council house), so what f-ing difference does 10,000 here or there make (ignoring the fact that most of those 10,000 would have bought anyway, just somewhere smaller or cheaper)?

In case I've not made myself clear: Pickles is a fat digusting Home-Owner-Ist lying bastard moron of a politician.

"Firstly, the Tories have NOT reduced the deficit"

To be fair to the fat idiot, he doesn't say they have. Being a good politician (that's good at being a politician, not a politician that's good), he says that the Tories have taken decisions "to tackle the deficit", which means f-all.
Anyway, what do you expect him to say? he's a Tory, in the Cabinet. He probably knows it's all bollocks, but it's more than his job's worth not to toe the party line.
