I am currently involved in a campaign to defend public housing from been
turned over to the so-called not-for-profit Housing Associations. This will
lead to higher, rents, less security of tenure and more regular rent views.

In 1979, the year Thatcher was elected, around a third of Britain's lived
in council (public) housing A generation later  it was down to 12 per cent.
She forced councils to sell their housing and than barred them from spending
the money on new housing. Councils that resisted were sacked.This has had
a devastating impact on working people who were left to the tender mercies
of the free market Needless to say New Labour continued her policies.

So in far off Australia she is still shaping public policy.
