So I pushed the simple plan on various people.
Here’s a scorecard.
LabourList: Henry Root-esque NO REPLY.
Liberal Conspiracy: Initially, NO REPLY. Badgered, Sunny Hundal said it was in his queue to read but it was so long. Politics is hard, let’s go shopping.
Dave Hill at the Guardian London blog: Hasn’t read it.
Will Straw’s Left Foot Forward: NO REPLY. Not surprising given some of the things I’ve called his father, really.
Divers housing/architecture/design lefties: Eeeeuw. BTL properties are ugly. [badgering] Well, needs must when the devil drives…
Thanks, comrades. (All that time spent stumping for the Lib Dems is looking a shitty investment right now, innit?)
Look, it’s not like I’m suggesting minting a trillion dollar platinum coin to fix the US economy or something. Using money that is going to be spent anyway to buy out busted operators and prevent the Great Housing Disaster of 2013 is actually something London Labour councils have implemented within living memory, almost within my lifetime.
