Building on Sand: The Legacy of Margaret Thatcher’s Housing Policies

Carolyn Thomas MS

Our housing system has been in crisis for decades; it remains in crisis because the fundamental foundations of the system have been broken. The idea that a home is a human right and that everybody is entitled to a roof over their head, like so many other areas of our economy, is now subordinated to the whims of market forces, privatisation, and the pursuit of profit.
