But once I heard Cameron talking about housing, I knew I had to say something.
Cameron was talking about knocking down sink estates and rebuilding ‘affordable housing’.
I have four children and I despair at what has happened to the economy and to UK house prices.
It has got to the point where people are no longer able to live in the areas where they grew up unless they have some sort of financial help.
I think that’s a result of a system of values that have been encouraged by this government – which is completely wrong – and it wasn’t helped by the previous government either.
The community that I grew up in felt strong; we lived in good council flats where people had security of tenancy.
My mum lived in the same flat from 1954 until the day she died in 1997.
The people who make the decisions now don’t see the need for that sort of housing and the need for it is not being catered for by the private sector either.
I don’t see the same sort of ambition that there once was in the housing programme – the private sector will not stump up for that sort of housing and the government must know it.
They need to be strong and insist that this sort of lasting reliable council housing is built.
But I don’t see them doing that.
Knocking down the so-called sink estates is basically just a land grab.
