Source: BBC News 28./Nov/2007 Forty per cent of the £5bn set aside to improve military housing will be spent on renting the buildings from a private landlord. Property developer ******* Homes will receive almost £2bn of that sum. State property was apparently flogged off (well, of course it was....) to these "people" over a decade ago. The Army Families Federation allegedly said the sell-off "had led to an under-investment in homes for service personnel and their families". Probably true, but in my own life I think....who wants to be in that position? I can't find the words to respond to this news, and if I could, they would probably be grossly unsuitable for these pages. W.M.
